As mentioned on the postcard, the church started in a wooden building in 1859. The back of the postcard has quite a bit of history. A series of other structures led to this sanctuary built in 1925.

I’ve got two of these postcards and neither were mailed, so it’s very hard to date this image. In that the main First Baptist Church has moved to a far larger and newer structure a mile or so away, this image predates that.
