Constituted in 1828, Siloam Baptist Church was organized as Smyrna Baptist. Smyrna was the original name of the church and village but when the post office department began eliminating duplicate geographical names in the late 19th century, it was changed to Siloam. Like other Greene County congregations, this church had African-American members until after the Civil War. This is the fourth house of worship built by the congregation.

This historic African-American church has been abandoned, though a sign over the entrance (The Church That Would Not Die) indicates efforts were made to preserve it at some point.

This utilitarian structure is a nice surviving example of vernacular architecture. The rear wing was used as the kitchen.
