Overview

Constructed of slave-made brick, this building went up between 1843-44 as the First Baptist Church. The classical block construction has been admired for its dignified simplicity. Used by local Baptists until 1893, construction of a new Baptist church allowed the structure to be used by the Methodists for a few years. The much-used facility even had stints as an apartment building and as the headquarters of the Consolidated American Life Insurance Company. The congregation of the First Baptist Church once again has possession of the popular landmark using it for various church functions.
