Live Oak Free Will Baptist Church, Anna, Baker County

Live Oak Free Will Baptist Church was established in 1884 by Warren McDonald. It was seated under a grove of oak trees thus earning its name. In 1908 a second two-story church was built. It was also used by Woodmen of the World for their regular monthly meetings. This church was renovated in the 1950s. In 1976 a third and final church was built (seen above). It was dedicated on July 16, 1977.
