Bap­tist build­ing

The News (New Glasgow) - - OPINION -

On Oct. 13, 1875, Rev. David Free­man came to New Glas­gow to help or­ga­nize a Bap­tist church. On Feb. 20, 1896, the First Bap­tist Church on the cor­ner of Forbes Street and James Street burned down. A sec­ond Bap­tist church was erected on the same site in 1897 and ded­i­cated the same year. In more re­cent years it was used as an en­ter­tain­ment venue known as the Celtic Cir­cle. This photo is part of a collection of dated build­ings with de­scrip­tions that were com­piled by Clyde Mac­don­ald and Philip MacKen­zie. It is re­pub­lished with their per­mis­sion.
