The History of First Baptist Church

 

In 1866, fifteen pioneers from Sweden gathered to organize the Swede Grove Swedish Baptist Church.  And in 1866, the railroad granted the church 10 acres to establish a meeting place. For the church's Centennial celebration in 1966, a booklet was published with a  rich historical description and many old photos . "In The First 100 Years" is that booklet in it's entirety.
