Inaha Baptist Church, Turner County

This congregation was established in 1890. Inaha, like so many other places in Georgia, was once a busy crossroads with its own store and farmers coming in regularly to “trade” and swap tales. Today, it exists in name only, with the church being the last tangible link to its past. For a nice memory of the place, please read John Wayne McRae’s essay, linked below. He shares some great anecdotes about visits to his uncle and aunt Jim and Margaret Phelps Hale, who owned and operated the Inaha store. And for you non-locals, it’s pronounced eye-na-haw.

    I don’t remember Inaha driving up and down 41 each summer but I do remember Sycamore. I thought all the towns between Tifton and Cordele along 41 were neat places.
