Brick Church Presbyterian ChurchAn historic church with connections to Lairdland Farm House
Historic Brick Church Presbyterian Church, located in the community of Brick Church in the North East corner of Giles County, Tennessee, needs your help.
Organized in 1840 and originally occupying a brick building, the present frame church building was erected after the Civil War on land that has been deeded to the community by pioneer settler Robert Gordon in 1820.
Brick Church Presbyterian Church has served as both a school and house of worship ever since. Among the young men who attended school there were:
Judge Neil S. Brown, Governor of Tennessee; Civil War General
General John C. Brown, CSA, also Governor of Tennessee
General Preston Smith, CSA, killed in the Battle of Chickamauga, 1863
During the Civil War and after, the school at Brick Church was considered one of the best in the state. The accompanying cemetery is the final resting place of some of Giles County’s earliest settlers.
Now our congregation is small but faithful. We hold Sunday School every Sunday at 10 a.m. and church services with a sermon the first Sunday of each month. The women of the church have revived an old practice of hosting a community supper twice a year for all who want to come. The cemetery is beautifully maintained by a committee.
Our aging and small congregation seeks assistance from those who love history and appreciate historic architecture. Any donation you can make will go toward maintaining the church building and grounds. Donations have recently helped us to paint the church and have custom storm windows made to protect the original windows. So, we urge you with honesty and prayer to make a donation to our preservation fund.
