If you’d like to learn more about how our church got started, thrived, faltered, and then grew to its present size and form, you’ll enjoy the story posted recently on accessWDUN.
As part of its series on small country churches in North Georgia, the WDUN online news service traced the intertwined histories of Nacoochee Presbyterian Church and Crescent Hill Baptist Church, which at different times in the past both worshipped in the picturesque little church building on GA Highway 17 near the intersection with GA Highway 75.
In a story entitled “Two Different Congregations in the Sautee-Nacoochee Valley Birthed in the Same Church Building,” the author, B. J. Williams, explains that the building was constructed and a Presbyterian congregation established by James W. Nichols, who moved to the valley from Milledgeville and found no Presbyterian congregation in this area. The story depicts how our church was founded and how the original building eventually became the worship space of Crescent Hill Baptist Church.
