Coatopa Church-Sumter County, Alabama

Located on a dirt road near Livingston, Alabama is the Coatopa Church. Built in 1901, the church served the small community of Coatopa. It’s most famous resident was Kelly Mitchell, the gypsy queen. She died in Coatopa during childbirth but was buried in Mississippi.

When I first saw a photo of the church, I knew I needed to document it one day. If you visit, just do it post mosquito season.
