Welcome to Historic Rural Churches of Georgia

We are dedicated to the documentation and preservation of Georgia’s Historic Rural Churches.  Please subscribe and take the journey with us as we travel across Georgia, telling the history of these wonderful old treasures and the early pioneers who built them.  A subscription means only that you will be placed on our mailing list for featured churches and new postings. Georgia is blessed with many historic rural churches and they all have a story to tell.  Georgia history is unique in many ways and the rural churches are, and always were, the beacons of stability in the ebb and flow of the sweeping societal changes that have shaped our state.  History doesn’t last forever, help us protect our rural heritage.
