Mount Pleasant AME Church, Georgia

Wilkes County, Georgia

I am uncertain how old this church is or the congregation. I would age the building to be around the 1900s. I am still researching to see what I can learn about the church.

Jones Chapel, Georgia

Wilkes County

Located on a long dirt road in Wilkes County, Georgia, the Jones Chapel is an abandoned church that used to serve the spiritual needs for the Black community in the surrounding community.

Historic Rural Churches of Georgia believes that it likely started as a white church and switched to a Black church in the early 1900s.
