    The church is utterly beautiful inside. The wood trim was never painted and is oiled and cared for in the most loving fashion.

    Is that building to the right of the church the same one in the original photo, but bricked up?

The Mt. Gilead Baptist Church was established near the corner of Dowd and Gurley Sts. after 1913 and prior to 1937. It appears that it was initially a frame structure, one parcel west of the corner. In 1952, Mt. Gilead acquired the corner lot, and built a new sanctuary that utilized both parcels, now recombined.

It is still in use by the Mt. Gilead Congregation today.
