1891. 200 Granbery Rd., 0.3 miles east of Stoney Mountain Rd.

This simple, frame Gothic Revival church, named for the Methodist bishop John Granberry, has pointed-arched windows with a tall triple window in the front gable and deep eaves. The entrance tower is unusually placed at the second bay of the building's five-bay length. Capping the square tower is a pyramidal roof supporting an octagonal belfry and spire. The church is now covered with aluminum siding.
