Cove Methodist Church, 1894, Walker County

The congregation of Cove Methodist formed in 1872 and soon built their first church, a simple frame building that was replaced by the present structure in 1894. The front of the churchyard is sheltered by one of the largest Chestnut Oaks (Quercus montana) I’ve ever seen. It’s a landmark in its own right. If you’re ever near Chickamauga, take the time to see Cove Methodist. It’s one of the most beautiful churches in one of the most beautiful churchyards in all of North Georgia.

Gable Front House, LaFayette

I was unsure of a “style” for this house but it’s certainly a gable front house. I really like it.

Historic Storefronts, LaFayette

LaFayette has done a great job of maintaining their historic commercial architecture.

Rows of storefronts and free-standing commercial blocks all seem to be occupied, which is unusual for a town of this size these days. It’s very pedestrian-friendly.

Bank of LaFayette Building, 1899, LaFayette

This is the most imposing commercial building in downtown LaFayette. The marble siding on the first floor was likely added during a renovation.
