Although the brick building shown here was built in 1916, Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church dates back to 1848. Originally started by local plantation owners and farmers, the location of the church has moved a couple times prior to this spot at the edge of a corn field in Sasser, Georgia.

Outside of Savannah, Georgia, is St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, built in 1896.  The congregation formed in 1832 by the Episcopal Church to evangelize local slaves.   There were approximately 1,000 slaves working the nearby rice fields at the time.  The Victorian style church features a raised altar and windows of varying heights with pointed arches.  Next to the church is a parish hall (1897) that was used as a schoolhouse until 1951.  Although the church has a smaller congregation than it used to, services are still held on a semi-regular basis.

In addition to Canon Methodist in Georgia, Canon Baptist Church sits across the street.  This wood frame church was built in 1896 and is the oldest of the three churches in the Canon District included on the National Register of Historic Places.  Its most interesting feature is the multi-sided tower with central window.
