Weldon Springs Missionary Baptist Church, Hard-Up, Baker County

Weldon Springs Missionary Baptist Church was a small Black church located on Hard-Up Road. Weldon Springs became infamous for its ‘7 Churches Road’ haunting. Story goes that the minister killed his congregation one night and was later hanged in the big oak off of the road in front of the church. Now the ghosts of the congregation can be seen and no one can remove the bible from the pulpit, plus the cemetery seemingly goes on forever. In all actuality, that is a myth that is common to many a ‘haunted church’ and never really happened, nor is there any bible to attempt to remove. The only truth to this story is the fact that Weldon Springs DOES have a large cemetery, but it certainly doesn’t go on forever. (Private Property, the land is owned by Pineland Plantation and they take trespassing very seriously.)

Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church is a traditionally Black church. I’m not quite sure if there is still a congregation or not, but it makes me happy to see that the grounds are kept nice and clean!

Thankfully the old Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church still stands, I believe that it is currently being used as a storage building.
