Bay Free Will Baptist Church, Colquitt County

Note the similarity between this church and Funston United Methodist. They must have been built by the same contractor, likely a local builder.

Chapel, 1960, Norman Park

This Space Age chapel is the focal point of the Mr. & Mrs. Warren T. Baker Center, a multipurpose facility built in the last decade of the Norman College era. I hope to learn the identity of the architect. It was a very progressive design for a small Baptist college in South Georgia, or anywhere for that matter.
