Long Description:

Details on this church are sketchy at best. I was able to ascertain this Baptist church and congregation began in 1968. The cornerstone reveals however the church was built in 1873. Judging by the previaling architecture I would guess this might have been a presbyterian or episcopal church with strong mid-European roots in their congregation.

A very nice architectural feature of this church is a kind of spire which rises just above the entrance. It is not quite a steeple and it is not quite a bell tower.

Date the Church was built, dedicated or cornerstone laid: 1/1/1873

Age of Church building determined by?: Cornerstone or plaque
