Instituted in 1797, this church was named for the William Carroll family, among its first members.

The present building erected about 1835 was restored in 1951-52 under the leadership of Bishop John H. Baker. Rev. Nelson Osborn (1797-1873) was a lifelong member and minister for many years. A numbers of other well-known Georgia ministers have served the church.
