Aha! A way in.... Side door with brace can't keep me out.

Calendars need updating, must also be a storehouse of sorts.

Desk and drawers full of papers

Stacks of stuff on the floor. This place was pretty locked up except for this window, this was all I could get to.

This pamphlet describes the Bethel Baptist Church's 121st annual session on October 27, 1953. I found it in one of the stacks.

can you give me directions to this church and lets see if we can get it on the historic register.

Sorry, but residents of Bluffton have identified this building as not an abandoned church at all. It was once a store, owned and operated by Mr. Herman Bass.
"Minutes" in the photograph are from the Bethel Baptist Association's annual meeting for 1953, not "Bethel Baptist Church."

As i grew up in Bluffton,Ga.,it is in fact Herman Bass's store..Bluffton has a Baptist and Methodist church and both are still active...Now can't wait to see my grandfather's store labeled as a church....
