Thanks! (9/25/2008)

This Collinsville Baptist Church Building was built in 1908. The current Baptist auditorium at the same location was dedicated in 1972.
The First Baptist Church will be celebrating their 100 year anniversary on Nov 2, 2008. We are trying to locate as many of former members of the church to celebrate with us! We are asking anyone interested in celebrating the day with us to call the church office, 371-2526 or they call email, Melanie Garrett at

Thank you,
Melanie Garrett (9/24/2008)
I'm assuming the 100 year anniversary is actually the completion of the 1908 building shown above as the Collinsville Baptist were active well before the historic building at 13th & Main was completed. I don't know the exact year they started, but this 1904 story was the oldest in my computer files. -- Ted Wright
Museum Visitor
This kitten was discovered in the Newspaper Museum last week by my "watch dog" Georgia which had it scrambling for the highest spot it could reach. I put Georgia in her cage and apparently the late night visitor eventually left to visit elsewhere. I don't know if it was attracted by the retired Cardinal mascots that resides at the museum. -- Ted
Humans are welcome to visit the Newspaper Museum In Collinsville by appointment or stop by if you see the door open at 1110 W. Main in the new & improved historic downtown Collinsville. -- Ted Wright

As early as 1903 there were Baptists meeting and holding services in Collinsville, which was still Indian Territory. Early pastors were:

S.A. Evans 1903-04
T.B. Hall 1905
C.E. Canady 1906 – 11

FBC celebrates our centennial in 2008 as the church was incorporated by the State Corporation Commission in 1908. That was also the year the church in the picture was built.

Thank you for including our Centennial in your news.
