Atlanta in Fulton County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Paces Ferry United Methodist Church
The adjacent Pleasant Hill Cemetery contains marked grave of William Brown who served the Confederacy. Many soldiers were killed nearby during the 16-17 July 1864 engagement between Confederate General Joseph Wheeler’s cavalry and Union General George H. Thomas’s 20th Corp.
On 30 October 1955 the congregation of West Wesley Methodist Church merged with Pleasant Hill Methodist Church to form Paces Ferry Methodist Church. It became Paces Ferry United Methodist Church with the denomination’s merger in 1968. The one room white clapboard church with the two red doors stands firmly on its hill as a constant reminder of our rural past.
Erected 2010 by Thomas Johnson Chapter, National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century.
