Bethel Church was established in Cannonsburg in 1804, the first Presbyterian Church in the Mississippi Territory. A Mississippi historic plaque recognizing Joseph Bullen, the church's founder, is located east of the settlement.
Richard Harrison owned a plantation in Cannonsburg which by 1860 had 38 slaves.
The Bethlehem Baptist Church was organized in Cannonsburg in 1860, and served the community's freed blacks and ex-slaves. The Church held a prominent position in Jefferson County's social, religious, and civic life. During the 1960s, the church held the first civil rights mass meeting in Jefferson County.
