Mount Carmel Baptist Church was conceived of and organized in 1929. The original incarnation of the church consisted of a group of men meeting in the home of Mingo White, Sr. The group eventually planned to rent a store for use as a church. The group would continue to use the store as a meeting place for worship services and made several additions over the years. Over time the church would be known as the Mount Carmel Baptist Church. In 1960, the walls of the church were restored and official services could begin again. The Church can still be found at its original location today on 606 S Mulberry St, Tuscumbia, Alabama 35674
