The cemetery at Oak Grove would suggest that this congregation is a bit younger than other Hardshell churches in the area. The earliest headstones date to the turn of the last century.
The architecture is the board-and-batten vernacular style emblematic of the Crawfordite meeting houses.
The beautiful interior is smaller than most but equally awe-inspiring.
The pulpit, or “the stand’ as it’s known by these congregations, is always oriented at the side of the meeting house.
An infant burial of 1901 is the earliest I could located in the cemetery, but there are many Brantley county pioneer families represented here.
