Historic Rural Churches of Georgis
June 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Sonny Seals will present the history and current activities of Historic Rural Churches of Georgia (www.HRCGA.org). Historic Rural Churches of Georgia was founded in 2012 by Sonny and George Hart with a mission to research, document and ultimately preserve historic rural churches across the state. The movement started when Sonny inadvertently discovered his great grandfather’s grave in the old graveyard of Powelton Methodist, a long inactive church in the “lost village of Powelton.” That discovery of his personal family roots and the related history of the little village of Powelton led Sonny and George to wonder about the old rural churches across the state and the disappearing villages. How many were there? What will happen to them? Does anybody care? Is there any way to save them? These questions are what led to the development of HRCGA.org, and also the publication of a book and a Georgia Public Broadcasting TV series.
