When driving through much of Georgia, you’ll regularly find semi-isolated churches. Although most are difficult to uncover much of their history, I added a few of them here, including Cooper Baptist Church at the edge of Twin City, Georgia.
Black Creek Baptist Church is in Screven County, Georgia and was established in 1912 according to a sign near the front entrance. There’s a cemetery behind the church with about 100 graves.
This little church in Screven Couunty didn’t even have a sign with its name out front.
McCanaan Missionary Baptist Church is near Sardis, Gerogia and is included on the National Register of Historic Places. The church served the black sharecroppers that remained in the area after slavery was ended. The church was built in 1912 (replacing two earlier churches built in 1875 and the 1890s) and has some Gothic Revival features. There were some modifications to the exterior in the more recent decades, including the addition of a flat-roof porch. A cemetery was established in the 1930s.
Another small church, Mt. Sinai Holiness is just east of Oliver, Georgia. It was established pretty recently, but it had an authentic look and this brightly painted sign nailed to nearby pine tree, so I stopped for some photos.
