Slate Mountain Presbyterian Church and Cemetery began as a mission of Buffalo Mountain Church in 1930, operating in a one-room school in Floyd County. In 1932, the fieldstone church was built, after the Rev. Childress’ success with the local population. It was organized as an independent Presbyterian church in 1939.
