Midway Baptist Church, Circa 1921, Pulaski County

Midway Baptist can trace its origins to one of the oldest congregations in Pulaski County. Originally part of the Old Adam Meeting House in the long-vanished Lampkin community, Midway was formed around 1838 as the result of a split among church members. Upon finally moving into their first permanent church home in 1857, which was located about halfway between Old Limestone Church on Chicken Road and the old Daniels Church on Lower River Road, they named it Midway. By the 1890s the old Midway congregation had outgrown the meeting house and built a new church, which they called New Midway, in 1894. It was destroyed by a tornado in 1915 and construction on the present church began. Work was delayed by World War I and completed three years later, circa 1921.

This congregation dates to the late 1820s and by 1832 they built their first church. A new church was built at the present location in 1857. To meet the needs of a growing congregation, a newer church was built in 1895; it served until the construction of the present church, seen here.
