The origins of this church can be traced to the Spring Creek Mission, organized in 1867. A crude log building served as the first church.  In 1871, the congregation adopted the name of Mt. Zion and a second structure of frame construction was built. The third and present building dates to 1901.

Built by the second son of Simeon Brinson, Homer Hodges Brinson (1878-1944), this house was extensively remodeled around 1919 in the eclectic style typical of the era. Elements of the Craftsman,American Foursquare and Prairie styles are the most predominant influences.

Built by Sam Hinds, this house features very unique windows. They were intended for use in an Episcopal church that was destroyed by a hurricane before the windows could be installed. The portico is leaning a bit, but the house and grounds are beautifully maintained.

Along with this innovative cross-gable gambrel-roofed house, lumberman Charles H. Caldwell built this carriage house, later used as a garage. It was among the most modern properties in Bainbridge at the time of its construction. The present owners have recently repainted the home.
