The stained glass windows of this 1919 church were imported from Czechoslovakia by Colonel Swann and considered one of the finest works in the South. When TVA made plans to flood this area and create Douglas Lake, Mrs. Swann wrote letters to senators and even poems to Eleanor Roosevelt to stop construction of the dam. Swann’s land was not saved, but President Franklin D. Roosevelt provided a levee that saved this church, which is all that remains of Oak Grove, the county’s earliest settlement.
