Ellaville Methodist Church Est. 1858


Ellaville Methodist Church. The site for this church was selected when the city of Ellavile was being laid out in the late 1850's. Several were instrumental in it's construction. One of those was Capt. Robert Burton whose home still stands quite near this church. Frederick J. Greene was another who helped with the construction and according to the "History of Schley County," he sent two slaves, Manuel and Rippen, who were expert carpenters to aid in the building. This building was brick veneered some years later and an annex was added in 1920. It sits just south of the center of Ellaville on Broad Street.
