Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Acworth

It was established by former slaves in 1863. They shared a building with Zion Missionary Baptist and alternated Sundays for services. In 1878, this building was dedicated. The bell tower was added in 1895. The two churches continued to share the building until Zion moved on to their own building in 1914. Bethel AME is still going strong today.
