Located on the Berry College campus in Floyd County stands this massive water powered mill. Said to be one of the largest in the world at 42ft in diameter this mill was used by the school to grind corn for various uses. In 1977 it was rebuilt in memory of Mr. Gordon Keown. Mr. Keown was an alumnus of Berry, a long-time staff member and a director at the Berry Schools from 1942-1944.

The congregation was founded in 1870 in a split with Little Ogeechee Baptist over the use of an organ in services. They later came back together of sorts and the congregation moved to Egypt. The current sanctuary was built in 1902.

The congregation goes back to 1789. It was first known as Buffalo Creek Church and had a small building a mile south of the current site. In 1828 a new church was built on the current site . That building has been replaced or rebuilt at some point and there have been many renovations over the years.
