Old Ruskin Church in a Georgia Ghost Town

Old Ruskin Church | Ware County Georgia | c.1895

Founded in 1895, a rural congregation formed and built this quaint church in the rural pines. The town of Duke, and later the town of Ruskin, formed around this church, although today, the church is all that remains. 

The church no longer has regular services but is immaculately maintained by its stewards while it’s nearly-identical sister church, Ezekiel Methodist, sits nearby in ruins.

  1. Hey, thanks for preserving these places, or at least the images to retain in our memories. We live in North Alabama near Athens and Mooresville, two places settled before 1818, which contain many beautiful structures- homes, businesses and churches. We love- my wife and I love to hit the back roads of Alabama and Tennessee, and we find many memorable places.
