Long Cane Baptist Church-Long Cane, Georgia

Long Cane Baptist Church was founded in 1829, and this church was built soon after that between the years of 1834-1837. The upper windows indicate where the enslaved church members sat in the upper gallery. The church size is quite large for an antebellum church, especially a rural one.

According to the info provided on FindAGrave, three area cemeteries were going to be flooded with the creation of the West Point Dam, and those cemeteries, Potts Cemetery, Sheppard Cemetery, and Wilkinson Cemetery, were located to the church’s cemetery in 1962.
