On October 24th the Effingham Public Library hosted a cemetery tour at the Center Effingham Baptist Church cemetery. Erik Reading Jones gave a presentation highlighting interesting facts about the families buried there and local history. It was a great event and we thank all who came!
Also, a HUGE thank you to the Center Effingham Baptist Church, The Effingham Historical Society, The Effingham Preservation Society, and our Effingham-native history buff, Erik Jones!
Effingham really does have a remarkable history and we treasure the opportunity to preserve and honor our town and its past.
Please keep an eye out for more cemetery tours in the future.
