Omaha Methodist Church-Omaha, Georgia

According to the Stewart County website, this church was built in 1895. This means that it was one of the few buildings that survived the 1913 tornado that flattened most of Omaha. The church was built with a much taller tower, but it was shortened because it was hard to care for it. It once was crowned with a copper spire.

In 2000, the church was deeded to the last members of the church, Blanche and Floyd Morrison. Based on other photos I have seen online, this church was in disrepair. By the yard, the satellite dish, and the new fence, I believe this building is back in use. Whether it is a home, community center, or something else, it’s great to see such a beautiful structure have a second life.
