Spice Valley Baptist Church was organized on June 1, 1822, and has had services since that time. First in a log cabin. A new building was built in 1837 on the present site and that building burned during a revival in 1887. A brick building was built back to replace the church in 1887 on the same site.
This black and white picture is from a postcard from 1949. It shows the 1887 brick building and the addition being completed in 1949.
