Samuel Blackwell’s family is well-represented in the cemetery at Hopewell Baptist. A large landowner in this area, he was instrumental in founding the congregation in the late 1840s. The structure likely dates to the 1870s.

The building is in very unstable condition but hopefully, it can be saved.
