Treutlen House at New Ebenezer, 2882 Ebenezer Road, Rincon, Georgia 31326
Effingham County's first settlers, the Salzburgers, who came to America as Lutheran immigrants
seeking religious freedom, inspired the Treutlen House at New Ebenezer.  They formed a safe
community in 1734 calling it Ebenezer, meaning "rock of help".  Here an orphanage was built
which they recognized as essential to the development of their community.  This orphanage is
recognized as the first orphanage to be organized in America.

The original orphanage at Ebenezer provided guidance and a safe haven to a young man
named John Adam Treutlen and his mother who were fleeing an abusive step-
father.  This
young man later became the first elected Governor of the state of Georgia.  The Treutlen House
Project is named in his honor.  Here future generations will benefit from the programs this safe
dwelling and Family Resource Center provide.
