10 Places: Black History in Coastal Georgia

Our Top Ten post was so popular that I’ve decided to try to do one of these each month. For Black History Month, I thought these would be timely. There may be a greater concentration of historic African-American-related sites on the coast than anywhere else outside Atlanta, but like all history on the coast, they are under constant threat from population growth and changes in land use and land value.

#1- 150th Anniversary of the Burning of Darien

#2- Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 1928, & Good Shepherd School, 1910, Pennick

#3- Praise House, Bolden

#4- Dorchester Academy Boys’ Dormitory, 1934, Midway

#5- African-American Madonna Monuments of Camden County

#6- Lambright House, Freedmen’s Grove

#7- Sam Ripley Farm, 1926, Liberty County

#8- Freeman’s Cottage, Circa 1820, Savannah

#9- George Washington Carver School, 1939, Keller

#10- First African Baptist Church at Raccoon Bluff, Circa 1900, Sapelo Island
