Interesting to know of a place literally named “Coffin Point” and I wonder why? I googled to read it and realised it was a plantation and where slaves worked on. Ebenezer Coffin….it should be Scrooge! Sad that in those days slavery was allowed. At least they had this praise house to keep them safe and for them to pray and gather. Thanks for the historical share
Thanks for sharing the history with the photos. Interesting about the dancing without crossing feet.
