Church Hill is a small unincorporated community in Jefferson County, Mississippi, United States. It is located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River, approximately 18 miles north of Natchez. The geographic features are different from those in the rest of the state; there are high and steep bluffs throughout. At the center intersection of this small community is an old wooden country store, with the old post office in it which was built around 1837. The store bears the name "Wagner`s Grocery" on the upper header of the store. The store was closed in the late 1990s, after which it was donated to the Church Hill historic society for preservation. It is the oldest known all-wooden heart pine country store that had a post office in the southeastern United States. Just across the intersection on a terraced hill is an old brick church, named Christ Church. It is the last of three successive buildings, and was completed in 1858. The church`s design was copied from the old country churches in England. All the massive beams in the upper reaches of the church have been stained and false grained. The false graining was done by using turkey feathers. In the upper slave gallery on the farthest northeastern wall is a stained and feathered grained beam, on which is the writing with a turkey feather of the names of the builder and the grainer of the church. Around the community are a large number of privately owned antebellum homes. Church Hill was a thriving community at one time, the land and concomitant industries producing considerable wealth during the antebellum period.
