Laytonville in Mendocino County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Stable / The Laytonville Baptist Church
The Pinches Stable was located here during the late eighteen-hundreds. During that time horses were the key element for travel and people passing through town boarded them here.
Laytonville's first church was built here in the 1860's. Before this church, services were held at private homes or schools. The Laytonville Baptist Church was sometimes used as a courthouse. Passing ministers would hold sermons here, but since it was not regularly put to use, it was to become a place to play for the children in the 1920s. It was eventually torn down because of its discontinued use. The bell can be found on display in the Babcock Bell Collection in Willits
Erected 2002 by Remington C., Amanda W.M., Mallory W.O.
