Ousley Baptist Church, 1881, Lowndes County

Ousley Baptist Church was established in 1850 but didn’t construct their first permanent home until 1874. It was replaced by this structure, which has been in continual use since 1881 . It is one of the landmark churches of Lowndes County.

    I love seeing these old church pix especially as I live in an old Methodist church which was converted to a house. Seeing the two doors is a dead giveaway to the time this church was built as just as in my old church they had one door for the menfolk and one for the women and children. Still hard to believe how separate even church folks were and in some cases still are. Thanks loads for you pix.
