Baptist Church

The Baptist Congregation was begun in  Bloomfield in 1820 and met in Concord Township.  In 1849, organizers (listed below) brought a Baptist congregation to Spartansburg.    The original church building was erected and dedicated in 1851.  The church was described in the 1955 writings of Ralph Elliott Blakeslee as a “perfect specimen of New England Meeting House.  That building was replaced by the current building on the same property in 1979.
