Blue Ridge Baptist Church

Organized in 1859 by 11 charter members.  Worship has been held regularly since.  Z.N. Morrell and Judge R.E.B. Baylor were among the early missionaries holding services in the settler's log cabins.

George Harlan deeded 28 acres for the church, school and cemetery in 1873.  The land is part of a grant given by Mexico in 1835 to his father, Doctor Isaiah Harlan.

Historic Texas Landmark
The first church building also housed an early school.

Church has sponsored annual "May Day Singing" since 1887.  Descendants still attend.

The third (present) sanctuary was build in 1908.

 

Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1970

 

I could say, “The darkness will hide me. Let the light around me turn into night.” But even the darkness is not dark to you. The night is as light as the day; darkness and light are the same to you. Psalm 139:11,12
