Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church, Circa 1872, Taylor County

The history of Shiloh, as well as that of its neighbor, Horeb Baptist, are a bit confusing as the congregations have variously been located in Talbot and Taylor Counties, with the county lines being redrawn at least once through the church yards and cemeteries. [I welcome any corrections of inconsistencies in my research and will update as needed].

Shiloh Primitive Baptist was first located near Dean’s Mill in Talbot County, circa 1840. It was then known as the Church of Christ Shiloh. In 1852, it was located in Talbot County, five miles north of Centerville; in 1872, it was located near Prattsburg. According to a sign at the church, this structure (the Prattsburg church) was moved to this location circa 1888. It is of the vernacular Greek Revival style common among Taylor and Talbot County churches.
