Inscription. The organizational meeting for this congregation was held at the home of John J. Driskill in 1886. The twelve charter members were first led by Pastor J.B. Greenfield, who served only one month, and then by J.A. Jarrett. The Baptist fellowship erected its first sanctuary in 1892. Members rebuilt their church home following the devastating tornado of 1909. During its early history, First Baptist Church of Zephyr held revivals under the Zephyr gospel tabernacle. Descendants of many of the early members still worship here.
 
Erected 1985 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 1686.)
