This lovingly restored antebellum church was spared during Sherman’s March to the Sea thanks to the Masonic affiliation of Daniel Ashley Jewell. Moved from nearby Rock Mill Plantation in 1894, it’s an integral part of Jewell today. Jewell is one of numerous Georgia communities whose town limits fall within more than one county.

Nothing says “small town America” better than a family reunion; I spoke with some of the attendees while photographing the beautiful old churches of Jewell, on the Hancock County side.

As evidenced by the accomplished architectural styles present in the area, it was much more prosperous in its early history.
