Warsaw, Kentucky Warsaw, Kentucky

This building was on the southwest corner of Main and First.  Built as a home for the Christian Church, it was later a one room school and served as the headquarters for the 20th Ohio Cavalry during the Civil War.  It was eventually purchased by the Methodists, who used it for a while, and eventually tore it down to build their present building on the location.

This picture is c. 1960, and is of the Second Consolidated Baptist Church.
It was originally built in 1851 as the home of the Warsaw Presbyterian Church but
has been a Black Congregation since the late 1800's.  “Consolidated” because there had
earlier been two Black Baptist Churches in Warsaw that merged in 1944.

The Warsaw Baptists originally organized on July 29, 1843.  They bought the lot from John Robinson for $100, and hired a Mr. Cull to construct it.  It was brick, and cost $800.  They rented it to the Methodists in 1857 for one Sunday a month for $1 per month.  This first church was torn down in May, 1882, and the church you see above was erected on the site.
