The town of Ebenezer in South Georgia was once such a thriving populace that it was named the county seat of Effingham County. The industrious city produced silk and was an important stopover point for soldiers in the Revolutionary War. Within just a few years, however, the city became virtually abandoned. Today, only one building remains from the town of Ebenezer. Most people don’t even remember that it ever existed!
Were you familiar with this fascinating “lost town” of Georgia? The land that was once Ebenezer is now largely in the town of Rincon. You can visit the Jerusalem Lutheran Church at 2966 Ebenezer Rd, Rincon, GA 31326.
