Church of the Latter Day Saints-Altamont, Tennessee

The elders at the Northcutt’s Cove Chapel decided that the church should be closer to town, so they decided to build on land surrounding the Altamont town square, a few miles from the chapel. Built with local stone hauled in by mules, the church took several years to build because the land was incredibly rocky. The church was in use from 1946-1981 until the congregation had grown large enough that a new house of worship was built on the edge of town.
