Devereux United Methodist Church, 1911, Hancock County

The first Methodist congregation associated with Devereux, Ebenezer, was located about ten miles away. It moved nearby in 1857  and was named Reynolds Chapel for its pastor. The present structure was built in 1910-1911 and dedicated by Bishop W. A. Candler in 1911. The name was changed at that time to Devereux Methodist Church. It remains a small but active congregation.

First Baptist Church, 1923, Forsyth

First Baptist Church of Forsyth was established in 1838 as Harmony Baptist Church. Their first home was constructed on this property in 1840. The congregation named was changed to First Baptist Church around 1840, then to First Baptist Church of Forsyth between 1913-1917. The old church building was retired in 1921 and the congregation moved into this structure in 1923. In the interim, services were held in the Bank Stephens Institute and baptisms performed in the swimming pool at Bessie Tift College.

Dr. L. B. Alexander and family were the first occupants of this house, later owned by the Tison-Brown and Coleman families. It’s among the oldest in Forsyth. Thanks to Stefanie Coleman Anthony for the identification.
