Description

Aspects of Georgia’s unique history can only be told through its extant rural churches. As the Georgia backcountry all of a sudden expanded in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the churches erected in this newly parceled land became the center of community life. These early structures ranged from primitive outbuildings to those with more elaborate designs and were constructed with local, hand-hewn materials to serve the residents who lived nearby. From these rural communities sprang the villages, towns, counties, and cities that informed the way Georgia used to be organized and governed and that continue to influence the way we are living as of late.

Historic Rural Churches of Georgia presents forty-seven early houses of worship from all areas of the state. Nearly three hundred stunning color photographs capture the simple elegance of these sanctuaries and their surrounding grounds and cemeteries. Of the historic churches that have survived, many at the moment are in quite a lot of states of distress and neglect and require restoration to verify that they’re going to continue to stand. This book is a project of the Historic Rural Churches of Georgia organization, whose mission is the preservation of historic rural churches across the state and the documentation of their history since their founding. If proper care is taken, these endangered and necessary landmarks can continue to represent the state’s earliest examples of rural sacred architecture and the communities and traditions they housed.
