Corinth United Methodist Church, 1904, Heard County

Organized around 1830 and the namesake for the surrounding town, the Methodist congregation of Corinth built their first church in 1837, followed by a replacement around 1855. The present building dates to 1904.

Federal Aid Highway Marker, Corinth

Exceedingly rare today, markers like this were once common along America’s earliest improved highways. F.A.P. was the acronym for “Federal Aid Primary”, a designation used from 1916 until the early 1960s for federally funded primary road projects. Georgia DOT historian Amber Rhea, who is leading an effort to catalogue the extant markers, notes that this one for the Corinth-to-Grantville Road dates from 1965, near the end of the time these markers were used.

Ruins of Hogan-Hammett House, Corinth

Lee Roy Hammett was the last owner of this house and loved its history so much he was buried on the grounds. His nephew, whom I talked to while photographing it, notes that it was originally built for the daughter of a member of the Hogan family, namesakes of nearby Hogansville. Unfortunately, prohibitive costs of modernization and toxic material removal have lead to its present condition. Much of the material is being salvaged for use in other projects.

This store served the community with household and farming supplies for generations and later served as a polling place and egg processing facility. Today it’s used for storage. The quilt panel on the side of the building is one of several in the area.
