Faith Baptist Church in Fitzgerald

This distinctive church building built circa 1906, used by the Christian Church for more than 80 years, is now home of Faith Baptist Church. The building demonstrates extensive use of granitoid and beautiful stained glass windows. Granitoid, seen rarely in South Georgia, is actually rock-faced hollow concrete block, a type of material produced in Fitzgerald in the bounding years, beginning in 1905, by the Fitzgerald Granitoid Company. Many homes throughout the City are partially or entirely constructed of granitoid.
