Dry Ridge Primitive Baptist


The Dry Ridge Primitive Baptist Church was constituted on this date, January 7th, 1827.

The Congregation who formed this church were once part of the Old Baptist Church on the Dry Ridge, and then part of the Williamstown Particular Baptist Church.

From the Grant County Sesquicentennial Publication: “The Primitive Baptist Church at Dry Ridge dates back to January 7, 1827, when the Rules and Decorum and Articles of Faith were adopted. It was formerly the Particular Baptist Church at Williamstown. Needing a new building, the congregation chose the site at Dry Ridge, and at the present continue to worship in this building which was Dedicated on July 26th, 1892. We do not know the special occasion when the photo was made but everybody turned out in their best 'bib and tucker.' Note the horses and buggies tied up in the background. We are grateful to Catherine Stephenson for supplying the picture.”

This building still stands and is now home to the Dry Ridge Presbyterian Church on Warsaw Avenue, Dry Ridge, Kentucky.
