The Methodist church in Tebbetts. Tebbetts resident Mike Sellers says most people who live in Tebbetts don't wear watches. They still rely on the church bells to know the time. The church, erected in 1908, once served as a Typhoid clinic for residents of surrounding towns when a devastating flood struck the area. The town is a high point along the Missouri River and has never flooded.
