Young’s Chapel

Young's Chapel, Ben Hill County, Georgia
Young’s Chapel, Ben Hill County, Georgia

This is one of the first abandoned churches I photographed in Georgia and it’s on a quiet dirt road in the south central part of the state in Ben Hill County.  Unfortunately, the last time I visited it had recently suffered some serious vandalism which left it even more exposed to the weather.  It borders a cotton field and dates to circa 1876.  Records have it last used for services over 40 years ago.
