St. Paul United Methodist

St. Paul United Methodist Church was the first church in McComb to open its doors to the McComb Movement. Beginning in 1961, St. Paul was a principal meeting place for voter registration training and Movement meetings. During the summer of 1961 it was the location of McComb Freedom School. That fall, St. Paul served as a temporary high school for the Burglund High School students expelled for their protests, until arrangements were made for them to attend classes at J.P. Campbell Junior College in Jackson.
