Pine Torch Church

Nestled in the Bankhead National Forest, Pine Torch was built in 1850.  Made from poplar logs with oak shingles and a tin roof, Pine Torch is the perfect example of a log building from that era.  It served as both church and school for the area.  Nondenominational services are held every Sunday at 10 a.m.

Pine Torch Church is part of the North Alabama Hallelujah Trail of Sacred Places, a driving tour of 32 churches that are at least 100 years old, stand on their original sites, still hold services and are accessible to the public.  For more information, visit
