FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH

160 Walnut Street

William David Johnson Pastor


The First Baptist Church was founded in 1868. The lot was purchased from early business leader, Benjamin Holladay for $1.00. Holladay's International Hotel, which burned in the mid 1800's, was previously on the site. In 1896 the Baptist Church was completely destroyed by fire. A second building was built on the site, which now houses the Weston Historical Museum. In 1959 the church moved to a new building on Walnut Street.
