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.

What a fine structure filled with character all round. Greetings to you.

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!

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…

North Bend Park, Virginia

North Bend Park, John H. Kerr Dam, Virginia. It was kind of rainy, kind of sunny. partly cloudy. It was a bit iffy, but we still made time to kayaking. Had a ball. The clouds & sun were playing on the waters, what great times to take photos. ( O : =  
This area has so many different campground on different parts of the dam/lake. I believe this is the 3 different one we have visited so far, I'm sure the hubby has the others in the plans for later on... never know what he has up his selves. giggles. ( ; 

Enjoy enjoy the vlog from that day. Thank you for stopping by, do take care. Beth ( :
