Ebenezer
Ebenezer is located in Effingham, about twenty-five miles northwest of Savannah and on the bank of Ebenezer Creek.

The Georgia Salzburgers, a group of German-speaking Protestant colonists, founded the town of Ebenezer in what is now Known as Effingham County. in 1734, the group received support from King George II of England and the Georgia Trustees after being expelled from its home in the Catholic principality of Salzburger (in present-day Austria). The Salzburgers survived extreme hardships in both Europe and Georgia to establish a prosperous and culturally unique community.
