A friend recently allowed me to browse through a collection of historic documents, photos, and clippings covering the history of the Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church. The church was organized on June 21st, 1879 and a building was erected in 1881. The first building was replaced with a new brick structure in 1926 which burned in 1960.
Below are photos of photos showing the first two buildings and other Mount Pleasant (Barren Fork/Drytown) structures of the times including one of the Barren Fork Academy. Also included, are photos of actual historic documents and clippings.
Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church no longer holds services. The latest building (not pictured) serves as a day-care for Mount Pleasant Residents. We'll get some photos of it at a later date to share with our readers.
