Willis Presbyterian Church and Cemetery, the last of the rock-faced churches associated with Rev. Childress to be built, was constructed in Floyd County in 1954, just two years before Childress’s death. The congregation had operated independently, however, since 1939. Its cemetery predates the church building by several decades, with fine examples of mid-19th- through mid-20th-century gravestone carving. Willis Presbyterian Church became the Interfaith Church of Willis in 1967, and was sold to Grace Baptist Church in 2003.
