Aliceville First Baptist Church
Sometime after 1849 the meeting place was moved about one mile west on Pickensville road.
In 1905 it was relocated in Aliceville and is now known as First Baptist Church of Aliceville.
The present building was dedicated October 4, 1940.
Through the years this church has been consistently dedicated to missionary causes, and the challenge of the Great Commission continues to be a vital part of her ministry.
