First Presbyterian Church, 1862, Columbus

The Presbyterians organized at Columbus in 1830, first meeting in the courthouse. The Reverend John Baker of Savannah was the first pastor. At least two churches predated the present one, which was completed in the early days of the Civil War. After it was partially destroyed by fire in 1891, it was rebuilt.
