Johnsonburg Methodist Episcopal Church
Johnsonburg, Warren County

Johnsonburg was originally named Log Gaol, and the congregation that built this church in 1850 was organized in 1787, when Francis Asbury preached in the area. The lines are very simple, with little of the Greek Revival influence that was sweeping the country. For a comparison, see the Cokesbury Methodist church, build about the same time.
