Inscription. In 1898 or 1899 nine charter members under The Rev. E.J. Thompson, a missionary for the East Fork Baptist Association, organized Lawndale Baptist Church (1 mi. NE). After the railroad arrived in 1900, the fellowship moved here and became Mabank Baptist Church. Area residents helped erect a meetinghouse at this location which served Baptist, Methodist, and Presbyterian congregations, and housed the public school. As the membership grew a new frame meetinghouse was constructed in 1929. It was replaced in 1973 by a larger brick sanctuary.
 
Erected 1979 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 8508.)
