Sardis Presbyterian Church, Rome, Georgia

Sardis Presbyterian Church was built ca 1836 on a site west of Rome, Georgia at the foot of Turnip Mountain. In 1821 the first missionaries were sent into this region to establish the Turnip Mountain Mission to the Cherokee Indians. It was known as Haweis. The first building of the church was a log structure covered with planks, which stood just north of the present-day church which was constructed ca 1855. It was on this site that during the War Between the States that the Sardis Volunteers were organized and were attached to the 6th Georgia Cavalry.
