Greenfield Historical Society

On Saturday, June 19, the Greenfield Historical Society will host an open house at the Shiloh Baptist Church, 435 Lafayette Street, Greenfield.

The society acquired the building several years ago and is beginning the process of restoration. The community is invited to tour one of the oldest church buildings in Greenfield. The hours will be from 1-4 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Shiloh Baptist Church was organized in 1866 or 1868, depending on the source you use. The congregation met several miles north of Greenfield and is reported to have used a schoolhouse the first several years.

In 1874, the Jackson family property on Lafayette Street became the site for the church structure. The building also was used in later years by the Cedar Grove 17 A&FM Lodge, Prince Hall affiliation.

The society welcomes everyone to stop by during the open house to learn about the church and discuss our plans to restore it. Please join us.
