The Pisgah United Methodist Church, also known as Old Pisgah Church, is another Tallahassee landmark which was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1974. As you can see from its historic marker, this beautiful old church has quite a history. You can also read more about Old Pisgah by visiting their website.

Between you and Jacob in Ocala, the two of you keep Florida of yesteryear alive! Thank you! Thank you!

I am glad that you have returned to Daily Photo posting after your break.

This simple, old church reminds me of the old church building that a Presbyterian church allowed us to use as our Boy Scout meeting place in St. Louis County. The best part of it was that under the organ was a trap door that hid a dug out space used as a hiding place in the "underground railroad" in the era leading up to the Civil War.

What a quaint clean looking Church.

I wonder if services are still held there...and how many parishioners can fit inside.

If you goofed-off in that church, everyone would know.

What a lovely little church, and such a beautiful location. Can you imagine being able to build a church for $5200.00?

I just love little bits of history like this.

Lovely old church. We have some churches named Pisgah around here.

It's very nice and quite typical of other old Methodist churches in Florida. I'd like to be able to buy seven acres of land near Tallahassee today for $125! Are services still held here?

Lois said...

Yes, services are still held here.

A nice little 'minimalist' church. No steeple required. It's good to keep history alive.

Lovely church and interesting history. I almost jumped - - my family tree has Preacher Richardsons in it!
