Antioch Baptist Church, 1899 & 1923, Taliaferro County

This is one of the most-photographed old churches in Georgia, even though it’s far off the beaten path.

An historic Black congregation, it was founded in 1886. Most of the original 1889 structure was rebuilt in 1923 after a fire. Today, it’s in serious danger of being lost without stabilization.

There is definitely a desire by descendants of church members to save it but I’m unsure where those efforts stand at this time.
