Rural Churches of the South

A beautiful roundup photo gallery of some of the South’s best historic + abandoned, rural churches.

Rural Churches of the South

We’ve traveled the South photographing small towns here and there that caught our eye. We just love capturing stories, discovering treasures and unearthing the roots of history along the way. If walls could talk I’m sure these would have a lot to say.

We’ve amassed this beautiful collection of church images that I thought it would be fun to put together an on-going archive of some of the most beautiful rural churches across the South. I’d LOVE to know which are your favorites.

If you know of a beautiful old church we should photograph, be sure to leave the city / state / location info below as a comment so we can add it to our list. Special thanks + all the credit to my longtime friend + photographer, Heidi Harris for these beautiful shots.
