Hickory Springs Methodist Episcopal Church is a historic church in Chatham, Louisiana.

The church and adjacent Hickory Springs Cemetery were established in 1841. The original church was a log building. The present church was constructed in 1900. Annual homecomings began in the early 1930s. Regular services ended because of declining local population, but the annual homecomings continued through at least 1972.[2][3][4] It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
