Martha-Mary Chapel, 1937, Richmond Hill

Acquired by the Diocese of Savannah in 1955 and renamed St. Anne’s Catholic Church, this chapel was built by Henry & Clara Ford and named for their mothers [Mary was Henry’s mother and Martha was Clara’s mother]. Most of the church furnishings were built on Ford’s nearby plantation. Students from the Ways Station School [Richmond Hill was known as Ways Station until 1941] and their teachers regularly attended services here.
