Description 

Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church (formerly Top of the Mountain Church) is located in Gilmer County, GA on Doublehead Gap Road. To get to it, take Hwy 53 east to Big Creek Road. Turn Left onto Big Creek Road, which will turn into Doublehead Gap Road. Mt. Pleasant is located on the left, across from the entrance to Rich Mountain WMA (Wildlife Management Area). The church is a small white building established in 1864. There is an outhouse out back, and it has the side entrance that was used in the 'old days' where the women would enter the church, while the men came in the front. Services are still held there on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.

The cemetery is very old, and many markers are just weathered stones sunk into the ground. It appears that some people have been researching who is buried at these locations or are marking them based on information the family may have.
