Inscription.  Richland Baptist Church was constituted Oct 5, 1811 with 4 male and 8 female members. The first pastor was Rev. Micajah Fulghum.

In June 1861 the ladies of this church made and presented a Confederate flag., to the Twiggs Guard. Mrs. Isolene Minter Wimberley made the presentation to Sgt. Warren, color bearer of Co. I, 6th Georgia Regiment.
