First African Baptist

 

First African Baptist Church, Darien, Georiga (McIntosh County)

I had made the stop in Darien, Georgia to photograph a handful of churches and didn’t know about this one until looking at a map a few months later.  So I made it a point to pull of I-95 the next time I passed by Darien to add African Baptist Church to the list.  This church was founded in 1822 and like the history of many others I’ve photographed, the original church was burned by the Union troops during the Civil War. However, it was rebuilt in 1868 in the same style.
