Located just south of St. George is this iconic primitive style church. I can’t locate anything about its history or construction, but it’s well-maintained.
Two things you rarely see anymore: the artesian well-fed pump pictured above works! The privy seen below is one of two on the grounds, as there’s obviously no plumbing. I believe the church must still be used for homecomings and funerals, at least.
The cemetery is nicely kept; the earliest graves date to the late 1800s, so perhaps that’s a clue to the origins of the church building.
Private Henry Gainey, Jr. Company G, 26th Georgia Infantry (1840 – 1864)
Private Gainey was likely killed in action, as his grave is marked with a Confederate Iron Cross. Beside his grave is that of another Gainey, probably his brother, who was in the Confederate service in nearby Florida.
