Leesburg Presbyterian Church was founded in 1869, and this church built around 1906. Donna King notes that it closed in 2009 after the congregation worked very hard to keep it open. It was purchased by Leesburg First Baptist Church around 2011. Steve Robinson writes: …this church was moved in July 2016 to Moultrie. It is now a wedding Chapel at Sundown Farms Plantation.

  1. Brian, this church was moved in July 2016 to Moultrie. It is now a wedding Chapel at Sundown Farms Plantation. They did an amazing job with the move and the restoration!

    This property was purchased by First Baptist of Leesburg about 2 or so years ago. Prior to that, before it was abandoned, it was a Presbyterian Church. I don’t know what it was before that.

    As a child growing up in Albany during the late 50’s and 60’s I would often go “down town” shopping on Saturday’s with my mom at Churhwells. I have fond memories of the sound of walking on the creaky wooden floors and the elevator with the protective metal foldable door inside as we went up to the second floor . Usually we would shop for fabric and a McCall’s pattern for a dress to be hand made by my grandmother or great aunt.

    It looks like there is a business occupying the space now.
    I wonder what kind of business?
