19 Shiloh Baptist Church We invite the community to stop in and tour Shiloh Baptist Church from 1-4 p.m., 424 Lafayette St. Light refreshments will be served. This historic church building...one of the oldest in Greenfield, was built in 1874, a dream of a small congregation organized in 1866 (or 1868 depending on your source). The congregation met several miles north of Greenfield and is reported to have used a school house the first several years. In 1874 the Jeptha Davis family property on Lafayette Street became the site for the church structure. The building also was used in later years by the Cedar Grove #17 A &FM Lodge, Prince Hall affiliation. The society welcomes everyone to stop by during the open house to learn about the church and discuss our plans to restore it. Please join us.
