Gist Settlement and Cemetery

About this Location

The Gist Settlement still exists today, however, its population dwindled greatly during the mid to late 1900s. With over a hundred years of history, the Gist Settlement continues to prompt many questions. What exactly did the first settlers think of Samuel Gist? What was it like to grow up in the Gist Settlement? Where are all of the descendants today? While the Gist Settlement may be too small for most maps, its history is big enough to fill many books.
