CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH
Cross over Central Ave and Calvary Baptist will be on your left. From 1833 to 1858, this lot was the original site of the Madison Baptist Church before it moved to its present location on Main Street. After the close of the Civil War, the Madison Baptist Church passed a resolution stating the following: should the black members of the church desire to organize a separate church, the congregation would aid them in doing so. In 1866, Calvary Baptist Church was formed, and the congregation met in a wooden building at the end of Hill Street until their new building was completed. Using member labor, construction began in 1876 and was completed in 1883. Next door to the church you will see the Morgan County African-American Museum.
