Inscription. This church, instituted in 1797, was named for the Wm. Carroll family, among its first members. The present building, erected about 1835, was restored in 1951-52 under the leadership of Bishop John H. Baker. Rev. Nelson Osborn (1797-1873) was a lifelong member and minister for many years. The renowned Bishop Francis Asbury wrote in his diary: “Friday, Nov. 21, 1799, we drove 16 miles to Carroll’s Meeting House, a new Log Cabin in the Woods. Some of the People of the Congregation are from the East and West Parts of Maryland. I felt the Lord was with them. We have the Kitchen, House and Chamber all in one and no closet but the woods.”
 
Erected 1957 by Georgia Historical Commission. (Marker Number 059-4.)
