The Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau worked with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Tourism Division, to help organize a Historic Rural Churches Tour for members of the Georgia Tech Foundation on June 9.
A few of Liberty County’s historic churches were on the itinerary. The Midway Congregational Church on Highway 17 in Midway, was the first stop in Liberty County. Tina Scott of the Midway Museum guided the tour.

During lunch, visitors had a chance to enjoy gospel music performed by the Gospel Cousinaires.
