First African Baptist Church-Cumberland Island, Georgia

Cumberland Island, Camden County, Georgia

It’s most known for being the wedding location of John F. Kennedy Jr and Carolyn Bessette. This one-room church was established in 1893 in the area known as The Settlement, where many men and women born into slavery made their home after the Civil War.

This building was rebuilt in the 1930s and sits on the island’s north end.
