The Organization of the First Baptist Church

     "On the 10th of March, 1838, messengers from the Baptist Churches at Licking, Dry Creek, Four Mile and East Bend, Kentucky, and Ninth Street and Enon Baptist Churches, Cincinnati, Ohio, met in a school house on the northeast corner of Fourth and Scott Streets in this city.
