This is one of the most-photographed old churches in Georgia, even though it’s far off the beaten path. An African-American congregation, it was founded in 1886. Most of the original 1889 structure was rebuilt in 1923 after a fire. Today, it’s in serious danger of being lost without stabilization.

    How beautiful! What a shame if it’s lost.
