Acona Church, Cemetery, and School

Acona Church, Cemetery, and School is a historic complex near in Lexington, Mississippi, in the community of Acona. This combination of church, school and cemetery was once common in rural areas, but the Acona complex is one of the few surviving ones.

The church was built in 1874 as a two-story building. The upper story was used for a lodge hall. A three-room separate building on one edge of the property served as the school. A cemetery was also developed here, with gravestones from the 1880s, and it was still in use in the early 21st century. The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
