Summerfield Methodist Church

The historic Summerfield Methodist Church was built in 1845 after its predecessor,
 Childers Chapel, burned nearby in 1842. The church is part of the
 Summerfield Historic District, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
 The community is a short drive north of Selma.

Very nice looking church. I like the double doors and the windows. A nice balance.

Thanks, Joe. This photo was taken a few weeks ago, so those tree limbs have filled out with leaves now.

You caught this simple beauty at its spring best, Janet. There is something so "methodist" about this church--pleasing symmetry of design, no pretense to grandeur. But then I may be revealing my personal preference with this comment. :-)

Great little church. I'm glad they have put it on the National Registry of Historic places.

I'd be most interested to know what part it played in the racial conflicts of that era.

Perfectly lovely country church! Draws me back to Bama in my mind a bit! By the way, saw your Pinterest pin and am a follower now.

The double doors are really interesting. Men on one side and women on the other, perhaps?

Thanks for participating this week!!
