Crescent Hill Baptist Church, GA








Crescent Hill Baptist Church circa 1922. We were visiting a Casita rally staying at the Riverbend Campground in Hiawassee, GA. It was a gorgeous church so I told the hubby we needed to stop there on the way back to the campground. We made a stop and took some pics ... of this beauty. I was hoping for some more info online ... one website said it was circa 1872. So I am not sure which to believe. I am just telling you want the church actually had on the building. Not sure where the website got it's info? But it was very interesting to read and all that jazz.

"Crescent Hill Baptist is nestled in the North Georgia foothills overlooking the picturesque Nacoochee Valley, carved out over centuries by the headwaters of the Chattahoochee River.  The church also overlooks a historically significant ancient Indian mound built by the Mississipian Indian culture known as ‘Moundbuilders’.  The mound is a famous local landmark that was formally excavated in 1915 by a team of archaeologists headed by Frederick Webb Hodge and George H. Pepper. George Gustav Heye wrote a book about the excavation, The Nacoochee mound in Georgia, with Hodge and Pepper, which was published in 1918.  The excavation uncovered 75 human burials, including 56 adults, seven adolescents, and four children, and eight bodies that were too degraded for their ages to be determined."

Linking up to "InSPIREd Sunday", Enjoy this beauty. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well this weekend. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

That really is a beautiful little church! I am glad you took photos. Maybe the original church was the earlier date and maybe something happened and it was rebuilt at the later date.
Lovely church, lovely architecture.
Very beautiful photos.
Blessed Sunday.

...Beth, you found a lovely white country church. Finding information online can be so difficult.

It has a nice prominence on that hill though the steeple looks like they ran out of money.

Hello, Beth! What a pretty white church! Lovely photos. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead.
I loved all the great place names!
Gorgeous little church! Would love to know more about its history...strange the difference in dates given. I would go with what's on the church, I think. Interesting info about the Indian Mounds site as well.

A beautiful, classic country church!

Charming church, such pretty details! The info is interesting too. I don't think you'd be able to excavate all those bodies today because it is disrespectful to their descendants.

This is such a pretty church,
though I must say, what makes it really interesting are the incongruities - the steeple and the single shutters that don't match the windows!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
