Inscription.  
Davis Creek Primitive Baptist Church is believed to be the oldest Primitive Baptist congregation in Tennessee and has continued in the same doctrine since its 1797 constitution. Established in Speedwell to serve the settlers of Yoakum Station, a part of the Henderson Land Grant, nineteen signers petitioned the Kehukee Association to form a Primitive Baptist Church. Among the many names were: Ausmus, Beeler, Box, Carr, Davis, Dunn, Yoakum, Hunter, Rogers, Vanbebber, Weaver, and Ellison. A total of ninety people joined on October 1, 1797. The current church building dates to 1850.
