One of the oldest Baptist churches in Georgia, Big Buckhead Baptist is located in a remote section of southern Georgia.  Although the church was organized circa 1774, the Greek Revival building was built in 1845 and is the fourth church built on the site.  It’s also another Georgia church building with the separate entrances for men and women. Supposedly inside there are hoof marks on some of the pews made when the wood was used to help Confederate cavalry cross a nearby creek.  On the couple occasions I’ve stopped by, the church was locked so I wasn’t able to confirm that story.  There is also a small cemetery across the road surrounded and partially hidden by trees.  And just a few hundred yards down the road was the Carswell Grove Baptist Church mentioned in an earlier post.
