England Chapel United Methodist Church, Circa 1888, Butts County

Like so many other rural congregations, England Chapel Methodist began meeting in a brush arbor in 1885 until the construction of a permanent home. The property upon which this church was built was given by D. N. Carmichael in 1887 and a local mill operator, J. B. Settle, offered to prepare the timber for the construction. Members from the surrounding community cut trees on their property and donated it to the church, which they also helped build. It still serves members today.

Historic Storefronts, Flovilla

Heard Street, running parallel to the railroad tracks, is Flovilla’s historic commercial center.

Much of the space is now occupied by the Victory Tabernacl. When I was photographing, mid-day on a Friday, the church was meeting and I could hear gospel music coming from inside, just as the sign promised.

Indian Springs Chapel, Circa 1890, Butts County

Said to have been built from timbers left over from the construction of the iconic Wigwam Hotel (later lost to fire), the little Victorian chapel at Indian Springs has been home to a Baptist congregation, as well as serving as a non-denominational place of worship throughout its history. Restoration work has been done in recent years.

Baptist Church, Jackson

By the architecture, I would guess that this was a Baptist church, as I’ve seen numerous examples of this style related to the denomination, but I’m unsure at this time. The church is abandoned and for sale.
