This historic African-American congregation dates to the early 1800s and was the childhood church home of one of Georgia’s most popular authors, Alice Walker. After years of disrepair, it’s being restored.
The small cemetery across the road is where Ms. Walker’s family are buried.
Alice Walker’s mother and father:
Willie Lee Walker – 13 September 1909-26 January 1973
Minnie Tallulah Grant Walker – 2 December 1912-10 September 1993
