Philomath, Georgia

Philomath Presbyterian ChurchAfter the Revolutionary War as veterans took up land grants in Oglethorpe County, large cotton plantations emerged and helped to build a community. The Philomath Presbyterian Church was established ca 1829, its name having been suggested by Alexander Stephens who noted that the residents were supportive of the Reid Academy and had a high regard for education. Hence, "Philopmath", meaning "love of knowledge."
