Jefferson County Churches - Then & Now

Photographs in this exhibit illustrate a sample of Jefferson County churches from the late 1700s to the present, showing both an older image and one taken recently.

Photographs are from the Jefferson County Museum collection (labeled with its IMG collection number) and the Jefferson County Black History Preservation Society (JCBHPS). We thank the JCBHPS for permission to use their photographs.

There are many churches in Jefferson County in addition to the ones pictured here; however, we have only presented churches for which we have an older photo. If you have an older photo of a church in the county that you would like to donate to our collection, we would be grateful (send email to For most older photographs the name of the photographer is unknown and therefore not listed.
