Slave Gallery

Midway, Georgia

Balconies in which slaves attended church with their masters are known as galleries, and while found irregularly throughout Georgia, they are most common in the coastal region, where labor-intensive crops meant a larger population of African-Americans. One of the  largest and best-preserved of these so-called slave galleries can be found at historic Midway Congregational Church (1792) in Liberty County.

    This entire article about South Georgia and its pictures are wonderful. Surely it took forever to put something of this magnitude together. It was done with such thought and care. Thank you!!!
