When I first saw a photo of this old church online, it was in a newspaper article that said it was scheduled to be demolished.  So I made a point to get to Augusta, Georgia before that happened.  As of now, it looks like there are still attempts to save the building, but its fate is uncertain.  Trinity Christian Methodist Episcopal was established in 1840 and this building was built in the 1890s, according to information online.  That conflicts with the cornerstone on the church that says that it was rebuilt in 1921, so I’m unclear on the timeline.  In the 1990s, it was discovered that there was underground contamination in the area from a nearby gas plant and the congregation moved in 1998.  Since then, the building has been unused and continues to deteriorate.
