English Eddy Presbyterian Church, Toombs County


According to Hoyt Pittman, this is the second structure to house this congregation. The first was on Georgia Highway 147. Hoyt also notes that there was a small community and post office which made up the community of English Eddy proper, on Old River Road. It was named for a feature of the nearby Altamaha River.

Sadly, this church was razed in 2020 for a highway project.

Hoyt Pittman writes: The eddy in the Altamaha River just south and west of the church was called English Eddy. There was a post office on Old River Road by the same name and a small community. The Church is the second church. The first was on 147.
