Text:

At "Old Dominion," then the home of John Lucas, in late Decem ber 1806, the first meeting of the Methodist North Georgia Conference was held. Although Sparta then was the extreme western appointment in the conference, preachers came from as far away as the North Carolina seaboard to the session. Earlier that year John Lucas with other Methodists in this section had been instrumental in the founding of Sparta´s first Meth odist Church and the Sparta Cir cuit.
