Maysville, Ga – Jackson County – Situated near downtown Maysville, Wilson’s Chapel United Methodist Church has been a part of the community for over 200 years.  The church was first established in 1814, when this was the frontier in Georgia.

In the 1850s, land was donated, and a new church was built.  The church was then named in honor of the land’s original owner, Mr. Wilson.

The church building reflects the style of so many country churches of the time.

Looking around the cemetery, there were some very old graves.

Amazing to stop and think of the history this church has witnessed in over 200 years!  There are several great old churches around Jackson County, here are a couple I have already posted:

Apple Valley Baptist Church, 1880s – Apple Valley, GA

Center Presbyterian Church – 1892
