The meeting house of Ramah Primitive Baptist Church stands empty today, largely unchanged from the time its congregation disbanded in 1979. The interior has the typical appearance of its nearby cousins, the Crawfordites. The date of the structure is not known, but the congregation was established in 1873.

The pews feature a crest on the ends, an unusual decoration for Primitive Baptist churches, where ornamentation is generally eschewed.

    I went to this Church for Big Meeting several times. Love the singing and the ceremonial Foot Washings. Some really good people went to this church.

    Any connection to New Ramah Church (recently torn down) in Ray City?

    The interior looks older than the exterior.
