First African Baptist Church

A registered historic landmark in the National Registry of Historic Landmarks and Places, the First African Baptist Church was organized in 1773. This magnificent Savannah landmark still contains many of its original elements including several stained glass windows, light fixtures, the baptismal pool and the 1832 Pipe Organ. The pews in the balcony were made by slaves and are nailed on to the floor; you can still see the markings they made in the African dialect known as “Cursive Hebrew”. Come for a visit or to enjoy a Sunday service. Be sure to look up at the “Nine Patch Quilt” design on the ceiling – a symbol that the church was a safe house for slaves.
