Notes:
* MIMS CHAPEL
Mims Chapel Cemetery adjoins the property of the Methodist church and both are on land in Avinger Texas donated before the Civil War for that purpose. A State Historical Marker for Mims Chapel was obtained in the spring of 1983 and reads as follows: "This church was organized by pioneer area settlers before the Civil War. The first building here was a log structure known as The Rock Church because of a large nearby rock where early meetings were held. The church was later named Mims Chapel Methodist Church in honor of brothers John W Mims (1829-1907) and Henry Mims (1839-1915) who were instrumental in securing this site for the congregation. Graves in the cemetery date from the 1870s and include prominent early community leaders. A school house here was in use until about 1906".
