Sharon Methodist Church, Taliaferro County

If you’ve never visited Sharon in Taliaferro County, I highly recommend it. Outside of the oldest Catholic church in the state, it also has this beauty, the Sharon Methodist Church.

Springfield Log Cabin School, Taliaferro County

Built in 1935, the Springfield Log Cabin School served the Black community in Taliaferro County. It is not a Rosenwald school, but it was built in a similar fashion due to the effectiveness of the different Rosenwald designs.

In 1965, it served as a community as a Freedom School, which educated elementary and high school students to become activists and participate in the Civil Rights Movement.

The Georgia Trust of Historic Preservation listed it as a Place in Peril in 2019. You can follow restoration and fundraising efforts on the school’s Facebook page.
