Description

Abandoned Church..taken in Chackbay Louisiana.

This little church was once called St. Luke Baptist Church but nicknamed Little Zion.It was built by and for the African American slaves in 1883.The land was once part of the Cleona Plantation.It became abandoned in the early part of 1970.The pastor retired and the people started attending his son in laws church.I just went back there a few days ago to take more photos.The church is more run down than ever, I can't imagine what is holding it up at all.Restoration is impossible at this point and I fear the next Tropical storm or Hurricane will be it's undoing...I am glad I got the chance to photograph this amazing piece of History.
