Brief History of Cane Creek Baptist Church

Cane Creek Church was established in 26 April 1866.  It is located six miles north of Dahlonega off Black Mountain Road.  Cane Creek sits at the end of a winding one mile country lane.  The church property is adjacent to the Chattahoochee National Forest.  It is a very peaceful place.  At this point in time, the age of the present wooden structure is unknown.  Behind the church is the cemetery.  Like most old cemeteries some of the markers are just a stone.  Many others clearly reflect the names that could have been church members over a century ago.  Several war veterans rest here.  One was among the first elders of the church.  His marker reads, "John J. Stargel - 1st Lieut. GA Militia - Indian Wars - Jul. 13, 1813 - Dec. 2, 1874.  This is a very well maintained cemetery.  There are 61 readable inscribed grave markers.
