Abandoned Holiness Church, Westwood

Westwood is an historic unincorporated African-American community located west of Fitzgerald. Most of its residents originally worked in the nearby Atlantic Coastline Railroad shops. I believe this was a fundamentalist church, either Holiness Baptist or Apostolic.

    Brian,
    Have visited this site and found dates on tombstones to be of interest.
    Would make a good project for some group looking for a chance to study history of that area.
