Inscription.  New Hope Primitive Baptist Church was constitued in July 1830. The presbytery officiating were: Wilson Conner, David Wood and Jordan Baker. Minutes of the church for the first 12 years were lost, and there is no record of charter members, but the church roll of March 5, 1842, lists 53, many of them pioneers of this section. It was at New Hope Church that the division in the Primitive Baptist denomination occurred, when some withdrew and formed a Missionary Baptist Church. The Rev. Richard M. Tucker was the first recorded pastor in 1842. George R. Reid was clerk in 1842.
 
Erected 1958 by Georgia Historical Commission. (Marker Number 156-4.)
