You can’t drive past a grand structure like this in a place like Davisboro and not wonder how it came to be here. It’s truly imposing with its rose windows and massive bell tower. Serving today as the United Methodist Church, it was built during the pastorate of C. T. Clark as the Davisboro Methodist Episcopal Church South.  The building committee consisted of J. W. Aldred, Chairman; L. J. Moye, Vice-chairman; C. F. Gibbs, Secretary-Treasurer; T. T. Hattaway; W. C. Northington; Dr. R. L. Taylor; and Dr. J. B. Dillard.

    Sandy and I loved Davisboro!

  3. Love this photo. I cannot locate this building on Google Maps. Do you remember the street name?

    • It’s on Main Street, Davisboro. Hope that helps…

        Ah, found it! On Google Maps, it looks like a large home with no parking lot. Davisboro is a fascinating little town. Clearly it went to an era of relative prosperity in the early part of the 20th century. Completely by-passed by all Eisenhower-era highways.
