1. Historic Mount Pleasant Church Marker
Inscription.  On this historic site a Baptist Church was established on September 5, 1891, by a group of courageous Mount Pleasant Community citizens. The Church was named Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The present Church which was built in 1948 stands across the highway on the former site of the Mount Pleasant School.

This historic marker is dedicated to the Glory of God, and to the memory of the Mount Pleasant Community people who met on this site to establish a church. These citizens included: A. J. Nally, L. W. Coley, W. W. Dellinger, W. M. Cornelison, Thomas Kimball, J. A. Shelton, Arthur Shelton, J. F. Young, Carl Young, California Cornelison, Elizza Kimball, Mary Dellinger, Julia M. Nally, Smithie Yancey, C. F. Shelton and John Pleasant Worley that donated the land for the Church.

This marker was erected by the Pine Log Historical Society to preserve the history of the area for the benefit of future generations.

Funds were from Grants from the Bartow County Georgia County Commissioner, Clarence Brown, and Cartersville Georgia Mayor, Michael Fields. These two men believe in the preservation of our Historic Sites.
