I’m still trying to add the last of the Georgia churches I’ve photographed so far for the project, so I’ll include several miscellaneous sites here.
New Ogeechee Missionary Baptist Church is a historic rural church on the outskirts of Savannah, Georgia. Listed now on the National Register of Historic Places, it was built in 1893 for the African-American population of the area. Although the congregation’s numbers are relatively small today, it’s still an active church. It’s located not far from another historic church included previously (St. Bartholomew Episcopal).
Located on the edge of Savannah’s downtown historic district, Greater St. James Temple, A.M.E. church has an interesting style.
Another Savannah church on the National Register, Nicholsonville Baptist dates from 1890. The original members of the church were former slaves from a plantation on St. Catherines Island in Liberty County. There’s a slightly older church on the property (below), but it is in a more deteriorated condition.
Asbury African Methodist Episcopal Church is in rural Screven County and another that I stopped quickly as I passed through the area. There’s a placard on the right side of the church that dates the congregation to 1910.
I was in Omaha, Georgia just before the state line with Alabama and visited a few churches in the small town. The Baptist and Methodist churches were included previously, but this one on 5th Avenue had no name.
Immanuel House of Prayer is in Darien, Georgia. Originally it was known as Grace Baptist Church and is from the early 20th century (circa 1915).
