1. First Baptist Church of Canadian Marker
Inscription. This church was organized by seven women in 1894 with the help of the Rev. Hatcher, a Baptist minister from Amarillo. Shortly thereafter about 32 people, converted at a local revival held by the Rev. Abe Mulkey, joined the new congregation. Early services and Sunday School classes were held at several area locations until 1911 when a brick sanctuary was completed. The congregation erected a fellowship hall and education building in 1954 and a new sanctuary in 1960. The church has grown with the community and continues to support various outreach and missionary projects.
