What was once the main house of a large working farm was later used as a tenant residence.

I believe it was occupied until the 1980s.

Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, Circa 1870, Newton County

This beautiful church, whose congregation was established around 1851, is located just up the road from the Brick Store. A history in the archives of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church written in 1950 by Dorothy Gray Bolton suggests the first church was burned during the Civil War and for a time the congregation worshiped in a brush arbor, then a small frame church nearby which was later given to a black congregation upon the completion of this structure. I would guess that would date it to around 1867-1875 but cannot confirm it at this time.

These nicely maintained buildings on Mitchell’s Main Street are like a trip back in time. The Coca-Cola sign hangs above the old Kelley Mercantile.

Denise Slaton Sickmann writes: This was my Great-Grandparents’ (Alton Boze and Ruby Mae Johnson) house…I visited there a few months ago and was excited to see the house is still there. I haven’t been there since I was a young girl.
