The church was completed in a simple Greek Revival-style in 1859, when the community was a prosperous antebellum town. The one-story frame building was used for church services up until the 1970s, when the congregation could no longer afford to maintain it. The property was then donated to the Choctaw County Historical Society. The historical society, at the time having only just under 50 members, spent more than 15 years raising money and restoring the structure for use as a community hall. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 8, 1986.
