It was built at a time when many congregations segregated the sexes through architecture. Men entered through one door and women through another.

    Just a thank you to the author for the pictures of this old church that has so many memories of my family; My Great Grand Daddy ( John Lewis Clark &Mary Clifton) and his wife are buried here in the cemetery as is my Grand Daddy and his wife (A. R. Clark Sr. & Mary Atwood ) John Lewis was a Civil War Vet and had a grist mill on Clark’s pond which is just a short distance from the church. My Grand mother told me that the reason the church was named Pleasant Hill was because Sherman’s troops camped there during their march to the Sea.
