Each week we present an historical place in Bladen County. This week we present the Purdie House and Purdie Methodist Church.

Purdie House and Purdie Methodist Church is a historic home and Methodist church located near Tar Heel, Bladen County, North Carolina.

The house was built about 1803-1806, and is a two-story, four bay by two bay, brick Federal style dwelling. It has a steep gable roof and two-story gallery porches. Purdie
Methodist Church is a mid-19th century temple-form Greek Revival style frame building.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
