Springvale Baptist Church, Circa 1910, Randolph County

Springvale Baptist Church was constituted in 1843 and originally known as Bethel. Its first home was a log structure near Pataula Creek. Two more churches, built in 1849 and 1870, would follow and both were gifted to the African-American congregation that grew out of Bethel after the Civil War. In 1893 the name was changed from Bethel to Springvale and the present church constructed about 1910.

    I like the simple design. Is that a bell tower? I do like church bells!

    Right across the highway (US 82) from the church is a large white framed house. The house belonged to my Uncle Ross and Aunt Jetta Reddick. Uncle Ross deceased in the 60’s, Aunt Jetta resided in the house until her death in the 70’s. I spent some time with them in the 50’s growing up and I remember the church well.
