1. The Historic Baptismal Trail
If you’re visiting Riceboro or Midway then you must explore the Historic Baptismal Trail. This peaceful trail was once an active holy place where the ancestors of the local Geechee communities baptized new members into their faith. This site features a boardwalk, benches and picnic tables as well as signage regarding the surrounding natural habitat and historical significance. This site is iconic because it played an important role in Liberty County’s African American history.
