This Trail features 58 churches in Union County that are more than 100 years old and are still holding services.

The Hallelujah Trail includes churches 100 years or older in Union County, Mississippi. This project has been undertaken as a part of the celebration of the Bicentennial of the State of Mississippi, with the principle that church life has been monumentally influential upon the people and culture of Union County, located in the heart of the Mississippi hills. We hope that you will take the opportunity to learn more about these churches and the rich spiritual heritage and fortitude of the area and visit them when you are in Union County . The trail winds through the town of New Albany, county seat of Union County and through the hills and hollers of the rural landscape.

Interesting architecture, peaceful cemeteries, simple structures as well as elaborately designed churches and beautiful stained glass are only a part of what the visitor to the Hallelujah Trail will experience.

Whatever your beliefs, the peace and serenity of these churches give us pause to reflect on the births, the baptisms, the marriages, and the deaths – the most important moments of our lives. Explore the Union County Hallelujah Trail today!
