Antioch UMC celebrates its 200th year at camp meeting
Placeholder Image
One of the oldest camp meetings in North Georgia begins Monday at the historic Antioch Campground on Antioch Campground Road in west Hall County. Antioch United Methodist Church on Antioch Church Road in the Sardis area itself is celebrating its 200th anniversary, and the camp meeting is believed to have begun as early as 1819 on the same site where services continue this week. A history of the church cites an 1826 deed that transferred the property from Henry Newton to Josiah Prickett.
