Harshaw Chapel

On a hill overlooking Murphy, the old methodist church and cemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The church was built by Joshua Harshaw, who was the largest slaveholder in Murphy.

Some of the graves predate the church.

Abram Enloe is believed by some to have been the father of Abraham Lincoln.

The high stones echo Murphy's towers and the mountains beyond (too bad about the power lines).
