In 1803, "The Walking Evangelist", Lorenzo Dow preached the first sermon in Jasper County on this natural pulpit.

This huge rock, naturally shaped like a pulpit, was frequented by Reverend Lorenzo Dow, the famous "walking evangelist" preacher. The Dow's Pulpit is located on Georgia Highway 11 just past the Monticello Crossroads Scenic Byway on the Jasper/Newton county line. The first gospel sermon in the county was delivered here in 1805.
