Regarding Cloyd's Creek Presbyterian Church.
The first Presbyterian church in the county was built at Baker's Creek in the late 18th century and this church was one of the primary churches of the denomination in the county for many years. On July 9, 1871, members of the Baker's Creek church were organized by the Rev. W.B. Brown and Rev. A. Vance into the Cloyds Creek Church at Meadow. The lot for the church was given by James Alexander, Sr. and membership of the church came from both Blount and Loudon counties. The following year the present frame church was built
