Organized in 1806, White Plains Baptist Church has a history that predates the community by 28 years. The present structure is the fourth on this site. Like the progressive congregation of White Plains Methodist Church, White Plains Baptist allowed African-American members to worship here from 1812-1869, a dynamic rarely seen in Georgia during this time.
