Located just south of St. George is this iconic church. The congregation dates to 1858.
The artesian well-fed pump still works.
The privy is one of two on the grounds, as there’s obviously no plumbing. I believe the church must still be used for homecomings and funerals, at least.
The cemetery is nicely kept and is the final resting place of many pioneers of southernmost Georgia.
Many members of Emmaus were Confederate veterans.
Private Henry Gainey, Jr. Company G, 26th Georgia Infantry (1840 – 1864)
Private Gainey was likely killed in action, as his grave is marked with a Confederate Iron Cross. Beside his grave is that of another Gainey, probably his brother, who was in the Confederate service in nearby Florida.
