The first building for the Baptist Church was erected in 1833 on the hill where Carlos Oakes now lives. The present building was erected in 1855, the old one being taken down and the timbers used for the new. No mid-week prayer meeting was held, as the people lived so far away ; but the people on the Plot gathered on Sunday mornings, at the school-house, for a sun-rise prayer meeting, then went home, did their necessary work, ate breakfast and went to church. These meetings were a great spiritual uplift and prepared them to enjoy the services of the day.
