Summertown United Methodist Church in Emanuel County

Circa 1881.  This historic church ceased to exist as an active congregation in 1995 and sat abandoned for seven years. Steve Head, originally from Millen is now a commercial contractor in Alpharetta. His company, as a service to communities around the state, has restored other old churches. On a visit to his mother in south Georgia, Head saw the church and decided to make it part of his company’s restoration project. Today, the church and its graveyard are owned and maintained by five trustees who bought it from the Methodist Conference in 2002. The cemetery is still active.
