former Camp Springs Methodist, Kingsland

The same storm system that brought tornados and so much anguish to Alabama on January 23rd came through Arkansas hours earlier. One twister touched down here near Kingsland and wiped out Camp Springs Methodist Church.

The pulpit was left standing... was the outhouse...

but the recently refurbished church itself was destroyed. A number of the gravestones in the adjoining cemetery were toppled and shattered as well.

We hear, but have not confirmed, that this may be the first church attended by Johnny Cash.
