Also see . . .  History of the First Baptist Church of Mountain City, Tennessee, Page 1. “The congregation has met in two different locations and three houses of worship. The first house of worship was a log building at the foot of Rainbow Mountain. In 1843 the congregation moved into the new town of Taylorsville and built a house of worship, which is the site of the present location. The small brick building was the meeting house of the congregation until 1851, when the building was razed and the present building was built.” (Submitted on June 14, 2017.)
