The church is in northwest Georgia near the Alabama border. The congregation was founded in 1856.
Built in 1958, the Dudley Motel provided respite for Black travelers along US Highway 80 in Dublin, Georgia. The motel hosted such luminaries as Andrew Young and Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Dudley family were prominent entrepreneurs in the community who developed not only the motel, but a cafe, gas station, mortuary, and cemetery for the African American community. For a thorough history on the family, and their history, please visit The Herbert “Hub” Dudley page. There are a lot of great photos there.
I know most folks will do a top ten. I thought I would do a least popular posts. I do have a large catalog of images I have never shared that span a decade, but these are all places I documented in 2022.
I became aware of this building on a historic resources survey. It’s identified as a church, but the chalkboard makes me think it was a school. Many churches served as schools, too, and based on how rural this building is, and I think it is safe to assume it’s both.
