Situated in a grove of old Georgia pines, Campground is the oldest congregation in Bacon County and one of the earliest Methodist churches in the interior of South Georgia. Legend maintains that Bishop Asbury, “Prophet of the Long Road”, hitched his horse here around 1800. A granite marker placed in 1942 is the source of this information. That’s likely the date the present church was constructed. L. E. Pierce was the pastor at the time.

First Presbyterian Church, 1910, Camilla


The church cornerstone dates the building to 1910, but the local historic marker dates it to 1900. I’m not sure the reason for the discrepancy.
