Long Description:
This area was known as Five Forks during the Civil War and was settled by freed slaves during Reconstruction. In 1900 a Missionary Sunday School was opened on Balls Ford Road by Miss Jennie Dean.

In 1909 this site was donated by Henritta Page. Though financial contributions by the Divers family of New Jersey and efforts of Miss Dean, the establishment of Dean Divers Baptist Church became a reality.
