Thursday Doors – Darien, Georgia

At least twice per year, we travel across the Florida state line to enjoy time along coastal  Georgia. When we are there, we explore the surrounding area, including Darien, which is where our favorite seafood restaurants are located.

Darien has an interesting history, and was settled by Scottish Highlanders in the 1700’s. James Oglethorpe had the grand idea of relocating folks from debtor’s prison in the United Kingdom to this area for a fresh start. He is also credited with rejecting slavery in the early colonies. We like him a lot. Anyway, at some point in the future, Catholicism was introduced to the colony and eventually the Church of the Nativity of Our Lady was constructed – most likely in the early 1900’s.

I had always assumed that the church was likely to have been built in the 1700’s or even 1800’s because of the influence of Spanish architecture, but nope, 1900’s. It is usually framed with Spanish moss hanging from the beautiful oak trees on the grounds, but since Irma just blew through the area a few weeks ago, there was no moss.

It is a pretty cool church, so if you are ever in Darien, GA, just ask a local where you can find the little church with the red door and they will point you in the right direction.

The Church of the Nativity of Our Lady in Darien, Georgia is my contribution to Norm2.0’s Thursday Doors. Enjoy!
