"White Church was whitewashed with lime, giving it its name. Its logs had been hauled from Fort Towson for construction. By the late 1930s historical accounts say the Choctaws who formerly lived nearby and worshipped at the church were deceased and the church was defunct. The church property had been purchased by a white farmer, who razed the structure. Its cemetery survives as Dela Cemetery."
