Mount Pleasant C.M.E. Church, 1910, Adel

Mt. Pleasant Christian Methodist Episcopal Church was organized in 1891, but the names of the organizers are unknown with the exception of the first Pastor who was a Reverend Home. Early services were held in an arbor and a simple church building was constructed soon thereafter. In 1910, during the pastorate of J. H. Davis, the present church was erected. It’s one of the oldest African-American congregations in Adel.
