Before 1910 few churches in Hamilton County  owned a church building.  While a few churches met in homes or yards, most shared the community school house.  There were probably churches meeting in each  school house in the county, although records have not been found to establish this as fact.  

Churches in village of Hamilton sometimes met in the courtroom of the court house.  Churches which had buildings shared their building with other congregations.  At that time, few (if any) churches had services more than once each month.  Many pastors/preachers (at least Baptist) pastored from 2 to 4 churches--each in a different community.  My Grisham ancestors chose to attend church services (irregardless of the denomination holding the service) every time a service was held in their community.

All Baptist churches which have ever participated in Hamilton County Baptist Association/Hamilton Baptist Association may be reached through this LINK.
