Springfield Baptist Church-Greensboro, Georgia

Greene County

Springfield Baptist Church was founded right after the Civil War. Newly freedmen and women were removed from the First Baptist Church, a white church. Conference minutes of the church reveal that for many years there were more enslaved congregants than white parishioners.

Church members purchased two parcels of land, one of them being the railroad depot where they held their first services. In 1907, this brick building was built with the bricks from the recently demolished Methodist church.

You can read more about the church on their website. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
