1. United in Faith Marker
Inscription.  In 1860, twenty-two African Americans gathered in the home of Sister Ruth Armond on North Greene Street and founded the African Baptist Church. Located on the corner of First and Greene Streets, the original Church was renamed Sycamore Hill Missionary Baptist Church in the late 1880s, in reference to the sycamore trees in the surrounding landscape.

Blessed with strong spiritual leadership throughout its history. Sycamore Hill Missionary Baptist Church prided itself on a gifted choir that filled the air with voices raised in song and praise. The large brick building with bells in its tower dates from 1917.
