Friends of Historic Woolsey

Preserving Our Yesterdays for Tomorrow 

 Help Save Historic Woolsey Church!


Our Story and Our Preservation Journey
 



The concept of our nonprofit originated in November 2019 when a group of Dr. Woolsey’s descendants met with Woolsey Baptist Church's leadership team in Fayetteville, Georgia. Dr. Woolsey’s wishes specified that if the church no longer used the historic church, it would revert to his descendants. Subsequently, the descendants and community members formed Friends of Historic Woolsey to restore the historic church, cemetery, and other properties in and around Woolsey, Georgia.
