Odessadale United Methodist Church, Circa 1903, Meriwether County

The Odessadale Methodist Church was organized in the local school house in 1897. Miss Odessa Thompson, a Baptist, gave the congregation an acre-and-a-half of land. A Sunday School was established in 1901 or  1902 and this church built soon thereafter.
