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.

The left side of this block was once the Stillmore Post Office. I imagine the other side was a grocery store.

Dee Bird Bivens writes: When I was a child in Stillmore, this was Mr. Henry Johnson’s General Store where you could buy everything from penny candy to overalls. Although it looks like several different stores now, it was one big store that took up the entire building.

Chicken Sculpture, Stillmore

Marietta may have the iconic “Big Chicken”, but Stillmore has this artsy tribute to the poultry industry, which is the largest employer in the community.
