Forgotten By All by SalemCat Forgotten By All by SalemCat
This little church was once called St. Luke Baptist Church but nicknamed Little Zion.It was built by and for the African American slaves in 1883.The land was once part of the Cleona Plantation.It became abandoned in the early part of 1970.The pastor retired and the people started attending other local churches.
I went back there not long ago to take more photos. I was very sad to see that this old church had completely collapsed! I'm just grateful that I was able to photograph it a few times while it was still standing.

Taken in Chackbay Louisiana.

Here are some other photos I have of this church:

I feel that this is part of our role as photographers and this is an exquisit example of artistic archives.

I agree with you. I hate to see pieces of history gone. There is something about old structures, as if there is trapped pieces of time in them..
