About Montgomery Hill Baptist Church
The Montgomery Hill Baptist Church and its cemetery is located on Montgomery Hill near Tensaw, a few miles north of Stockton on Highway 59. This simple Greek Revival structure is typical of the nineteenth-century rural churches with its frame construction and one-room sanctuary. Yet its resemblance to a Greek temple and use of interior graining and paneling set it far above any of the homes built in the area at that time. In addition, the slave gallery is a historic statement of the social arrangements of a slave-owning society.
