Abandoned Religion


This little church and cemetery lie outside the town of Berlin in Bracken County, KY. I believe it to be the Pleasant Ridge Methodist Church, although there is no identification that I saw anywhere on the building.
I attempted research to discover a little history about the church, but I was unsuccessful. Bracken County published a “Religious Institutions of Bracken County 1839-1939” and there is no listing of this church, so I have to assume that it was deserted before that, although I have no proof.
If anyone knows anything about the church, I’d love for them to comment!!

  1. Great skies! And a poor little forgotten church.

  2. The full name of the church was Pleasant Ridge Methodist Episcopal Church.

    Perhaps you can find what you are looking for through the Wesley Center, it seems they actually have a detailed history of the Wesleyan movement in general, if you feel like going through mounds of records. It is amazing how many records the Wesleyan churches have kept.

    PS: You can always try the historical society as well.

    • thanks POF Guy, I actually did check all of that out and without sending emails and doing extensive research… I posted hoping someone could do it for me!
