Recognizing A Historic Church

Recently, people from Pike County and beyond gathered for an annual celebration to honor one of Kentucky’s oldest church structures.Tucked away at lower Johns Creek stands one of the the oldest church buildings in not only Pike County, but all of Kentucky. Built in 1853, Snivley Chapel has served home to residents of the area for decades. However, the chapel’s congregation didn’t always have a home. Since the 1830s, services were held at a number of different locations until Martin and Sarah Lesley offered their land to the church’s trustees.
