Congregational Church, Midway, Georgia

This postcard depicts the antebellum church of Midway, GA. It is a Congregational Church building reconstructed in 1792 after the original structure was destroyed by British soldiers during the American Revolutionary War.

The description states:

MIDWAY

One of the oldest settlements in Georgia, famous for its old church of simple architecture containing a large slave gallery, high pulpit and plain pews. Across the highway is the graveyard shadowed by magnificent oaks.

— The postcard most likely dates from the late 1950’s, since this was the only time my family was living or visiting in Georgia. My father was stationed as a soldier at Fort Stewart near Savannah, and Midway is a few miles SSW of the city.
