In 1870, twelve members organized this congregation and built a log church near Chesser’s Island on the edge of the Okefenokee Swamp. That structure was moved to this location but burned in 1896. The present church was built soon thereafter; the steeple was added in 1918. Central heat and air was added in 1997-98.
