Road Trip 1: Covington First Methodist's Open Steeple

Covington, Georgia rocks. We took the long way to the beach took car pictures.

Covington First United Methodist Church.

"The exterior of the current building is described as one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in existence today. Its classical full façade portico boasts six Corinthian columns topped by a balanced pediment. Its unique cupola (the bell tower) was likely added sometime after the original construction, perhaps in the late 1880’s. This church was utilized as a hospital during the Civil War from 1861 to 1865."
