Brief History of 
Damascus Primitive Baptist Church
 Cemetery


This church is a twin brother to the Dahlonega Baptist Church. In 1835 a Baptist church was established at Kimzey creek.  In 1838 the little church was abandoned, a part of the membership "retiring to town", as they said, while the other members thereafter met at "Brother William Anderson's" for worship.  This latter group organized the Cavender Creek church, which in time became a non-missionary or Primitive Baptist church, under the influence of Rev. William Tate. Some years later the church was moved a few miles further north and located near the ancestral home of Esquire J. Mart. Duckett, and the name was changed to Damascus.  About thirty years ago the church was again moved, and now occupies a beautiful location in what was formerly known as "The Old Field" in Frogtown district.
