Union Primitive Baptist Church and Cemetery-Goggans, Georgia

The church was founded in 1837 in what is present day Monroe County. The current church is the second one for the congregation after it was built in 1890. The Goggans family (founders of the town, too) gave the land for the physical establishment of a church and cemetery.

There are a mixture of markers and fieldstones throughout the cemetery.
Rebecca Pitts (1810-1970) and John (1802-1886) Goggans donated the land for the church.
A cairn is one of the interesting burial markers in the cemetery.
