Dry Branch, Georgia

I’m not sure if this was a store or a community house but I understand that it has been recently restored. Other than a mid-century post office, now abandoned and replaced by a newer structure on Highway 80, this is the only public building I found in Dry Branch. A portion of Dry Branch is located in Bibb County, but I believe this is in Twiggs County.

Jeffersonville Baptist Church, Twiggs County

I’ve been unable to locate a history of the congregation, but I believe the building dates to the first two decades of the 20th century, when this style was quite common with Baptists.

Jeffersonville United Methodist Church, 1924, Twiggs County

The Jeffersonville Methodist Episcopal congregation was formed in 1839, first meeting in the home of Joshua Grantham. Their first permanent home was located on West Magnolia Street, but was replaced by a more substantial frame structure on this location in the mid-19th century. In 1918, Ella Beckom donated funds for the construction of the present church to honor her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Fran Beckom, but money ran out just as the building reached the window ledges. The congregation met in the old Auburn Institution for several years but in 1923 construction resumed and was completed in 1924.
