A little west of Millen, Georgia on Old Lousville Road I passed this small rural church named Salters Grove Baptist. I took a couple of photos, but there wasn’t any indicator of how long the church has been here. There’s a small cemetery behind the church with a few graves.
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is in the small southern Georgia town of Woodbine. It was built in 1900 and has tabby covering the exterior walls. Tabby was once common on old structures in the region, first used by Spanish settlers, and then later by English colonists. It’s made by burning oyster shells to create lime, and then mixing it with water, sand, ash, and broken oyster shells to form a concrete type of mixture. Below is an example from a tabby slave quarters from Kingsley Plantation in northern Florida.
On the way back through town I also passed the church below named Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church. Nothing yet on the history here.
Rock Mill Methodist is in Hancock County, Georgia and was originally built near a plantation in the area after the church organized in 1840. In 1894 the church was moved to a new location in Jewell, Georgia across from Jewell Baptist Church (established 1869, built 1870) shown below.
Jennings Baptist in another of many old churches in Taliaferro County, Georgia. Established in 1894, this building was completed in 1904 for the farming population in the area. It’s on Sharon Street about midway between Sharon and Crawfordville and has the traditional men/women entrances. There’s also a small cemetery on the west side of the church.
Across the road from Siloam Baptist, Siloam Presbyterian sits on the corner of Church Street in Siloam, Georgia. This building is from 1903 and was formed by previous members of the earlier Hastings Church. This quiet town has a population of about 250 today.
