First Baptist Church

First Baptist Church, Ironton, OH

Ironton Register, Thursday June 14, 1854

The foundation for the Baptist Church, on the corner of Fifth and Vernon Streets, is about being laid. We understand that the size of the Church on the ground is to be 80 feet by 50 feet – not large enough. This will seat only about a hundred persons more than the Presbyterian church, which has already proved to be very much too small on some occasions. The Baptist is a very large and prosperous congregation, and it will be regretted ere long unless a larger Church than the one contemplated is built. Very liberal subscriptions for the building have already been made, and we doubt not that a little extra labor will secure the extra amount of means required for a larger edifice.
