Old St. Galilee Baptist Church, Hancock County

This is the original home of Saint (St.) Galilee Baptist Church, which has a newer facility in Sparta today. I’m not sure when the church was established , nor when this structure was built. It was sided with false brick siding (tar paper) before it was bricked. A very large and well-maintained cemetery is adjacent to the property.

    I enjoy your postings very much, and always look forward to them. This posting raises a question that has puzzled me foe as long as I have passed the successor sanctuary over the years: Who was St. Galilee?? I know Galilee to be a place name, not the name of any person, canonized or otherwise.
