CANEY FORK BAPTIST CHURCH HISTORY

Caney Fork Baptist Church is the oldest Baptist Church in Putnam County, TN. History handed down for generations trace the beginnings of the Caney Fork Baptist Church to the early 1800's.

The actual beginnings of the church is believed to have started in the log home of Joshua Bartlett on the south bank of the Falling Water River in the Dry Valley area in approximately 1806. After Joshua Bartlett moved his family to a larger log home, the original home was used exclusively for the church and possibly as a school.

The second building to house the church was the larger log home that Joshua Bartlett had previously moved his family to, later owned by Dudley Farley.

The third church building was built on the north side of Falling Water River on land donated by Hyrum Brown near the Brown's Mill. School was also taught in this building.

In 1931 the church was moved from the river bank to it's present location. At that time the old church building was disassembled and the wood was used to build the church at the new location.

In the early 1960's the weatherboard exterior of the church was covered with brick.

In 1998, church members began a building program resulting in the addition of a new wing to the church. The addition included new classrooms, new restrooms, new kitchen and fellowship hall, new nurseries and a new pastor's study. The space between the wings was set up as a prayer garden.
