First Baptist Church, 1947, St. Simons Island

A revival meeting in 1938 led to the formation of a Baptist congregation on St. Simons Island. What began as a small group grew rapidly over the next decade and by the time First Baptist Church was dedicated in 1947 there were over 200 members.

    I had no idea SSI First Baptist is so young. That means my grandparents were some of its first members. They were operating Tree Top Inn down the street that year. Maud and John Pickett Palmer.
