We have no history on New Lebanon Baptist, other than the cemetery information we find on Findagrave. We think it is an African American church that followed the pattern of so many of them that obviously once were thriving but have succumbed to the combination of declining rural populations, aging congregations, abandonment and death. This is another sad reminder of days gone by and neglected rural heritage and history. If anyone has anything to contribute, please let us know.

New Lebanon Church has been torn down, sometime between July and October.
A group has been working at restoration for the cemetery.
Good news about the cemetery. Thank you for letting us know, Cat.
This one is gone and the land has been cleared. There isn’t a trace left. ??
Sorry to hear that, Jennifer, but thank you for letting us know. Is the cemetery still visible/intact?
That’s sad. The Graffiti in the building is really disrespectful.
County? Directions? Thanks!
Sumter County. The map is up now.
