The Turner Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church is located at 113 Second
Ave East, Carthage.

The construction of Turner Chapel was completed by Rev. Arch Turner, a minister
and a shoemaker. Rev. Turner and his family moved to Smith County from Trousdale
County. It was for Rev. Turner that the church was named. The lot for the church
was purchased from Sallie M Hart by the following trustees in 1900: Aaron King,
A.H. King, Will McKinley, G.J. Pride. The price of the lot was $100. The amount
of $75 was paid with a balance of $25 made in two installments.
Some outstanding mininsters have graced the pulpit of Turner Chapel. In addition
to Rev. Turner, other ministers were: Rev Jodie Adams, Rev Ledford, Rev Walter
Harper, Rev J. H. Waddell, Sis. Hines, Rev M.M. Cole, Rev Woodson, Rev Eddie Marshall,
