Apalachee Methodist Church, 1925, Morgan County

The first Methodists met in a home in Apalachee. They built their first church around 1840 and it was known as Comfort. A new structure was completed around 1857 and the congregation changed its name to Philadelphia. A fine wooden church was built in 1903 and served until destroyed by fire on 13 April 1923. The present structure was built in 1925. It was associated with the Methodist Episcopal [M. E.] sect at that time.

A granite slab table for dinners-on-the-ground is located behind the church, as well as this playhouse which I think is meant to represent Jonah’s whale.
