Long Description:

Fourth Street Baptist Church

In 1900 the Mt. Canaan Baptist Church was established under the leadership of the Reverends John Bellamy and Willis Carter when a few men and women met under a fig tree on Third Avenue to worship. In 1901 Rev. Bellamy separated from Mt. Canaan to organize a group of fifteen members who worshipped under a brush arbor on fifth street as New Canaan Baptist Church. Rev. Bellamy resigned as pastor in 1901 as was replaced by Rev. Pearson under whose leadership a fifty dollar tract of land was purchased. A shelter was built for worship and became Fourth Street Baptist Church.

Erected by the Historic Chattahoochee Commission 1995
