Lavonia Methodist

Lavonia Methodist Church, Lavonia, Georgia (Franklin County)

Built in 1948, Lavonia Methodist Church is not as old as most of the churches I usually stop at, but it had a distinctive character that caught my eye when passing through this small town in the northeast corner of Georgia.  According to a plaque on the front of the building, the previous church was built in 1907 and burned at the end of 1946.

This old church is slowly rotting away on a rural road in southern Georgia.  Ezekiel Congregational Methodist Church was built around the turn of the 20th century and definitive information about its history is a little hard to come by.  It’s a Carpenter Gothic design and despite fire damage, still has some gingerbread ornamentation remaining.  It’s not far from the Ruskin church which has some similar decorative touches.
