As a coastal community, Riceboro has the advantage of providing
access to the waterways, I-95, U.S. Highway 17, and various historic
attractions and greenspaces. The City of Riceboro has a rich Gullah
Geechee heritage and is home to several historical sites. We will work
to preserve the stories and sites that make the City of Riceboro unique.
For almost 100 years this site was an active holy place where the
ancestors of the local Geechee communities baptized new members into
their faith. Oral and written church history from the surviving
descendants of the First African Baptist Church indicates that as early
as the 1840s this site was used as a place where the ritual Christian
baptism was performed by leaders of a congregation of enslaved people.
The site features a boardwalk, benches, and picnic tables as well as
interpretive signage regarding the surrounding natural habitat and the
historical significance of the site. It is open to the public for
self-guided tours Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on
Saturdays & Sundays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Hours are subject to
