Dickey Presbyterian Church, 1871, Calhoun County

Historic Dickey Presbyterian Church Terrell County GA Landmark Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2016

This congregation dates to 1849, beginning in a location a mile south and then known as the Pachitla Presbyterian Church. For a time, the area was known as Whitney, and the church name was changed to Whitney Presbyterian. The name was changed to Dickey Presbyterian in 1913, for Thomas Edward Dickey, who had donated the land for the present building. Located on a beautiful dirt road and surrounded by family who have owned the adjacent farm for over 150 years, Dickey Presbyterian is worth visiting. Though no longer active, the church and grounds are well maintained and watched over by family members.

    A beautiful classic Brian. Hope this church will soon appear in the “Historic Rural Churches of Georgia” site with the interior shots that are usually included. Thanks as always.
