Old Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Circa 1884, Dooly County

Located between Unadilla and Pinehurst, this tiny vernacular chapel sits at the rear of a pecan orchard and in front of a cotton field. There’s a cemetery beside it, as well as wooden dinner-on-the-grounds tables. This congregation apparently still meets the third Sunday of each month.

    I love riding down Hwy 41 when I am in Dooly County and seeing this old church…been riding up and down Hwy 41 “forever”. Love seeing those cotton fields also.

    I went by this little Church this past Friday on my way to Juliette Ga. I got
    pictures. I mother’s father and his family came from Dooly county. Their
    name was Coker if anyone has any info on this family I would be most
    grateful if you would contact me. I have had a hard time finding the older
    generation of this family. The names are; Perry Frank Coker and Henrietta
    Mayo Coker.

    This small church is near where my parents lived many years ago. At one time near the church was a dogwood tree that would bloom either white or pink, not sure it is still there.
