Inscription.  

As early as 1835, Baptists were worshipping in this area. In 1868, when Calvert was founded, Houston & Texas Central Railroad donated lots for a church. Until a brick edifice was built in 1873 on that land (at Hanna and Pine), services were held in a private residence.

This church was host (1875) to Baptist State Convention; (1875, 1878) the State Sunday School Convention; (1912) Hood's Texas Brigade Reunion. Sent (1907) Alyne Guynes Muirhead and (1915) Sammie Guynes Johnson as missionaries to Brazil. Since 1947, sponsors Mexican mission. Elmo Baptist Church merged with Calvert, 1969.
 
Erected 1972 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 10921.)
