A south Georgia church, likely built by slaves, is now included on a list of America's most treasured historic places.
Liberty Baptist Church in Grooverville in Brooks County was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Experts say slaves probably built the church around 1858. And it included a balcony that gave slaves a separate place to sit during worship services.
The National Register says it's one of the few remaining examples of a small antebellum church left in south Georgia.
The church is closed now but remains in great condition.
