Liberty Hill Methodist Church, 1953, Twiggs County

Liberty Hill Church was organized in the vicinity of Myrick’s Mill in 1871 and their first church home was constructed in 1872. It was destroyed by a tornado on 30 April 1953 and the present structure was built during the same year, holding services by Christmas Day. The congregation does not appear to be active at the present time.

Snow United Methodist Church, 1903, Dooly County

The South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church gives some background on the history of this community: The need for a church was discussed during a gathering of neighbors in Mrs. Tilly Crumpler’s home prior to 1833. These people searched for a site near a good water supply which was difficult in an area not near a river or creek. This group found some boiling springs of white sand that reminded them of snow, so the place was called Snow Springs*. The first structure was a brush arbor used primarily as a summer camp meeting place. Next, a log structure was built and a deed for eight acres of land was given by Brother Taylor. The first Bible was presented by Mrs. Vickers. A wooden structure replaced the log building prior to the Civil War. The present building was constructed in 1902-1903. The stained glass windows are original but were reframed during the 1950s. Sunday school rooms were added in the 1940s…The church bells were considered “old fashioned” so they were taken out in the 1920s and the steeple was renovated in the name of modernization.

*- because another community in North Georgia is already known as Snow Springs, this community is “officially” known as Snow Spring. It’s also been known simply as Snow.

Bakerfield Baptist Church, Dooly County

Bakerfield (Baker Field) was once a small community centered around a Flint River plantation. Though I can’t locate any further history at this time, I feel the church must be related to that community and likely has a long association with the area.

Pinehurst United Methodist Church, 1928, Dooly County

The Methodist Episcopal Church South established a congregation at Pinehurst in 1890, with the Reverend T. I. Nease as first pastor. The first church building was a wood frame structure that featured a belfry (full of pigeons, as the story goes). The present church was built in 1928.
