Methodist Episcopal Church, Culloden, GA

February 21, 2016

We can guess that the north Georgia community of Culloden was either settled by Scots or that it was named for the 1745 Battle of Culloden, last confrontation in a British religious war. Another “Battle of Culloden” was fought in our own Civil War—ten days after Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. The community’s Methodist church dates from 1893 and is featured in a website devoted to the vanishing heritage of North Georgia, from which I’ve borrowed this image:

Go the website itself to appreciate this country church, whose exterior gives little hint of the Akron-esque adjunct spaces within.
