Cyrene, Georgia

The Cyrene Commissary, built in 1904, served farm workers and railroad traffic in this rural community near Bainbridge, named for the ancient Greek city of Cyrenaica. It was located along the Atlantic Coast Line railroad. A post office at Cyrene was open from 1894-1938.


Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Cyrene

This historic African-American church dates to the early 20th century. I’m unsure when the congregation was established.
