Taliaferro County – outside Crawfordville – Antioch Baptist Church.  This beautiful church is located a few miles south of Crawfordville.  I was able to take a look inside and take a few photos of this amazing space this week and wanted to share it with you.

Antioch Baptist Church, est 1886

While I could not find much documentation on this church online, most accounts agree it was established in 1886 by freed slaves.  While the church is in need of repairs, it’s well maintained inside – spotless!  A small cemetery is adjacent to the church.  Services are occasionally held here.

This spot – out in the country – is so special, I wanted to include more photos than usual.  I’ll hush and let you enjoy some photos!
