Picture 167 of 365

More about Kitty's Cottage from the Historical Marker in the park:
"Kitty's Cottage" location. Kitty was a mulatto slave girl willed to Bishop James O. Andrew, President of the Board of Trustees of Emory College, with the stipulation that at age nineteen she was either to go to Liberia or remain as free as the law and society of Georgia would permit; her decision to remain in Oxford, technically the slave of a Methodist Bishop, partly brought about the organization in 1845 of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Kitty's Cottage was moved in 1938 to Salem Campground near Covington.
I'm attending Pastor's School at Epworth by the Sea later this month (Lord willing) and I hope to get some photographs of more Methodist historical sites in Georgia.
