Jeanne Bryan Insalaco writes: I was just there in October and the store, Johnson’s Pharmacy, next to the one on the corner is now bordered up; in April the roof was gone but you could still look inside. The corner store was originally The Bank Of Siloam, the vault is still inside. My cousins, Lawson and Ulma O’Neil McKinley owned it as a grocery/general store last. My grandparents lived in this town of Siloam, so I grew up around there and visit yearly – I also love to take photographs of areas before they are lost.

This was probably built as a store.

This structure utilizes the same porthole vent found on the general store across the street. It was likely designed by the same builder.

Siloam Presbyterian Church, 1903

John Dolvin first organized Hastings Church in 1894, then dissolved it at the end of the century to form the Siloam Presbyterian Church. It’s known as Dolvin Memorial Chapel in his memory. In 1929 it was saved from fire by a Mrs. Rhodes, who lost her life as a result of burns she sustained during the conflagration.

Siloam Cemetery, Established 1878

Located adjacent to Siloam Presbyterian and across the street from Siloam Baptist, this cemetery was established on land owned by Siloam (then Smyrna) Baptist for use by the community. Granite fenceposts around some of the plots are a neat feature throughout the cemetery.
