Good Hope Baptist Church

This church has its origins in Walnut Grove Baptist Church, c. 1820, which had both white and black members before the Civil War. After the war, black members asked for letters of dismissal to organize a new church, founded around 1870 with Rev. W.L. Evans as its first pastor. Marker erected by the Congregation, 2006.
