Lovett House-Sardis, Georgia

Screven County

This is the view that caught my attention driving down the road. No one else may see this, but I was reminded of one side of the House of Seven Gables.

The Lovetts have businesses that still carry their name and a cemetery less than a mile from where this house stands.

The Restoration of Walker Grove Baptist Church, Georgia

The Newington Historical Society is working to restore this historic Black church in Screven County. You can read more about this church at Vanishing South Georgia and Historic Rural Churches of Georgia.

You can follow along with the restoration at Walker Grove Restoration on Facebook.

St. Andrews AME Church, Georgia

Screven County, Georgia

At the moment, the only information I know is that the church was founded in 1868, and the building was erected in 1914. I know they were an active congregation prior to COVID.

My assumption is that this was a Masonic lodge or school, perhaps both.
