Adairsville Church on the Square

Adairsville - Bartow County

Situated on the edge of the historic downtown square, the Adairsville Church was built in 1887 by a United Methodist congregation, boasting Carpenter Gothic architecture. The church building has served as an important part of the community for over a century and this revitalization added modern conveniences that will enable greater use while maintaining its historic integrity. The project included repairing and repainting exterior siding, preserving ornate historic detailing and restoring original hardwood floors, while discreetly adding or cleverly concealing modern amenities. This endeavor not only rejuvenated the church but also invigorated community engagement through hosting local events, attracting new members and reinforcing the church’s vital role in downtown Adairsville.

Excellence in Rehabilitation Awards recognize projects that make compatible use of a building through repair, alterations or additions while preserving features of the property that convey its historic value.
