Wahoo Baptist Church - Murrayville, GA

Wahoo Baptist
The Slot and Tab tombs are unique to North Georgia. Wahoo Baptist church, founded in 1819, seems to be at the center of an area that includes Lumpkin, White and Hall counties, and contains perhaps the largest number of these graver markers anywhere. The author of the 'Slate-and-Tab Tombs of NE Georgia' website has recorded 166 cemeteries that contain graves with these markers. While the structure is all above ground, the bodies are still buried beneath them as the hollow tombs are empty.
