The Baptist Church of Christ at Ramoth
Restoration to the church began in May 2012. Supervised by Carling James Brackey, the work was completed in December 2012. The Baptist Church of Christ at Ramoth played a significant part in the lives of people who live in Kinderhook and surrounding districts of southern Putnam County, Georgia. The restored church will continue to stand as a poignant reminder of the past.
The restoration was completed in honor of the original church members and in memory of their descendants, many of whom are buried in the adjoining cemetery.
