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!

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
