Shortly before hitting the Georgia state line north of Lake City is the town of Jasper, Florida.  The church pictured was built in 1878 and has had a few modifications over the years.  The architectural style is Carpenter Gothic, and a prominent bell tower is featured on the front facade.  In the early 1930’s, a small country church was moved to Jasper and attached at the northeast corner of the building.   The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 as “United Methodist Church”.

On the edge of a cotton field, Pisgah Methodist Church featured here was organized in 1806.  Early on it was referred to as “Russell’s Meeting House”  in honor of Dempsey Russell who donated an acre to the congregation.  A frame church was built in 1879 and later, the red-roofed Carpenter Gothic style building was built in 1914. It’s located just outside of Florence, South Carolina.
