Replacing the original log church built around 1847, the present meeting house of Anderson Primitive Baptist Church is thought to date to the mid-1880s. Organized by Tattnall County pioneer Peter Anderson, the congregation, like many in rural areas, went through periods of great growth only to dwindle to low membership as members died and moved away. (Andersons alone make up nearly ten percent of the 1000+ burials in its historic cemetery). Luckily, a revival of the congregation resulted in what is today one of Tattnall County’s most active historic congregations to this day. It’s among the most beautiful of the Primitive Baptist church yards I’ve encountered.
