Mt. Tabor Church & Cemetery

May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


A Virtual History of Mt. Tabor Church and Cemetery

The Mt. Tabor AME Zion Church is the oldest African American Episcopal church in Cumberland County, built circa 1870 when there was a thriving Black community in Mt. Holly Springs. The community of about 100 African Americans began work in the paper mills shortly after the Civil War. As the social hub of the community, the church lasted for 100 years. As the mills began to close during the 20th century and the community began to dissipate, the last service was held in 1970, and for the next 50 years the church and cemetery have stood abandoned. Now the church is a national historical landmark and along with the attached cemetery of about 60 graves, is in the process of preservation.
