Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, 1888, Rebecca

Pleasant Hill Baptist Church was organized in 1876 by a missionary preacher, James R. Fields, who had several other nearby churches in his charge. At the time of its founding, Rebecca was known as Grover; the present church building dates to circa 1888. One of the more interesting rules of church decorum (essentially a set of governing by-laws):

“If any member of the Church shall give a party of dance…they shall consider themselves cited to conference.”
