The old Baptist Church in Foss
has been turned into a residence.
Some 15 miles west of Clinton
is yet another town that "bit the dust” at the hands of Superhighway I-40. Foss got its start in the late 1890s when people began to populate the valley of Turkey Creek. However, when a flash flood occurred on May 2, 1902, it pretty much wiped out the town, washing buildings away and drowning several people. Not tempting Mother Nature again, the surviving residents moved out of the creek bottom to higher ground and the new town was called Foss
