First Baptist Church - Crawfordsville
Four Generatios of Buildings, drawn by Mary Early Johnson
A view of the 1893 Building
Part of the early History:
-- on Sunday, July 11, 1915, a "House Raising Day" was held - to "assist us in making this the greatest and best day in the history of this church." The reason for the day was to build a much needed church edifice. The Trustees were: G.W. Deere; W.L. Hunt and A.P. Morris, with pastor Barney Antrobus
The following information can be found at Crawfordsville Public Library: See the program here. The group of men in this picture may be those who worked on the edifice above - thanks to CDPL for these pics. This is a drawing of the current church which is on the Lebanon Road (drawn by Mary Early Johnson, CDPL librarian) - I assume the drawing of the various First Baptist Churches was also drawn by MEJ too. The church had a radio program for several years with ministry and singing.
