Shiloh United Methodist Church, 1894, Dooly County

Thanks to its location near Interstate 75, this church has likely been seen by millions of people over the years. I’m among those who have traveled the highway over the years and noticed a beautiful old church on the horizon as I passed through Dooly County. Shiloh was established in 1874 as a brush arbor by Reverend C. E. Boland. In 1883, James T. Jackson donated an acre of land for the construction of a permanent facility. Mrs. Sally Brown gave the church its name and a small building and school were soon completed. My research suggests the present structure was built in 1894. It is still an active congregation.

    This is one of my favorites scenes in Dooly County. It is absolutely stunning in the fall when the cotton fields surrounding the church are in full bloom.
