First United Methodist Church, 1911, Royston

The Royston Methodist Church was established in 1877 by Reverend Samuel Gaines, when the community was still known as Cross Roads. The first services were held in a log school house on Franklin Springs Road. A frame church was built circa 1880 as the congregation had outgrown the school house, but it was destroyed by a tornado in 1886. A second house of worship replaced it in 1888. It was replaced by the present structure in 1911.
