Burns Methodist Episcopal Church was organized by freed African
Americans who settled in the area known as “Freedmen Town” after the
Civil War. The current church building was erected in 1910 and played a
major role in the lives of many African Americans until 1974, when the
Burns congregation moved to its new location. Best-selling author John
Grisham later bought the building and lived there while working and
writing in Oxford.
