Stillmore United Methodist Church, 1907, Emanuel County

This congregation dates to 1892. Minister-Architect Charles Edward Choate’s beautiful design for this church embodies his relationship with this congregation, of which he was the first minister. Choate would later leave the ministry to become a full-time architect, well-known throughout the South. I photographed this last year, when the leaves were still on the sycamore. I think I like this view better, as more of the church is visible.

    Beautiful old church Brian. I hope, on your North GA site you can feature, what was until recently, the New Holland Methodist Church. It is a fantastic shingle style Romanesque Revival in an old mill village just outside Gainesville. Well worth the trip
