|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Old Bark Camp Baptist Church, located near Midville, Georgia, was organized in 1788. The church flourished in Burke County until the late 1950´s when the building was abandoned. In 2003, the Bark Camp Restoration Committee was formed, comprised of local citizens, united to save and restore the church building for future generations to enjoy. With the hard work of volunteers and private donations a new metal roof was installed, steps were built, general repairs were made, and the church will soon have a new coat of paint and shutters; and the committee´s next goal is to reclaim the cemetery and clean and repair the headstones of those buried there, including many citizens who worshiped at the church and who had a dynamic impact on Burke, Jenkins, Emanuel, and Jefferson counties in aspects of religion and politics. The members of this body congratulate the Bark Camp Restoration Committee on its efforts to reclaim Old Bark Camp Baptist Church and cemetery and extend to the committee their best wishes for continued success with their restoration project.
