We could have gotten a ticket for going too slow in Oliver Georgia. It's a little gem about 20 miles east if Stateboro. We drove around Oliver in the rain. Glad we did.
The only sign we saw directed us to municipal court.
Here it is on Schoolhouse Road.
We turned up Clark Street and hit Railroad Avenue, Old Louisville Road and took a little jog to Kildare. We'd have gotten out of the car if it wasn't raining.
Little Ogeechee Baptist Church is on Old Louisville Road
Thanks to Brian Brown at Vanishing South Georgia we have some good information on the Little Ogeechee Baptist Church. I hope Historic Rural Churches of Georgia is on the way.
"Church was used in a movie in 1974 called 'Buster and Billie'”
"The church was established 222 yrs ago. The present structure is the third in the history of the church and was build in 1912. There is a grave yard attached to the church property."
Corner of Railroad and Schoolhouse.
We found City Hall.
And the post office.
We took a little jog up Highway 24 and found Oliver on 24 which sure looked like a church.
Maybe a meeting place / wedding chapel now.
There's a pretty blue next door with some stabilizing columns, a good sign.
Hope to come back on a pretty day.
Next stop: Rocky Ford.
