      Concord Primitive Baptist Church; History: From an article written by Ruth Cunningham Morgan. It is from "Homecoming 86" Belleville Saga this is just a few paragraphs from the article.

      "By 1810 a group of Baptists in the village petitioned the Boiling Fork Primitive Baptist in Franklin Co., TN., to send eldership to assist in organizing a church (ref. Boiling Fork minute book). The first church, The Concord Primitive Baptist Church at Norris Creek was organized soon after 1810 (Goodspeeds History of 1886 says, "prior to 1820") Since the first minute book of this church has not been found the exact date of it's origin cannot be ascertained.

      Elder George Foster of Kentucky came to Middle Tennessee in 1806. He was responsible for having organized many of the early Primitive Baptist Churches in this area.

      Concord first belonged to the Richland Creek Association but was transferred to the Elk River Association in 1831 for convenience of the messengers, the first being Rev. James D. Cole, Reuben H. Boone and George Small. By the 1860's a new building was needed. The land on which Concord was built belonged to John Cunningham. Alexander Ashby was the leader in soliciting money to build the Church. For many years Concord had a large membership and attracted members from miles around. It became the mother church to Buckeye, which was officially organized in 1872, and to Mt. Hermon, which was organized about the same time.

      A few who served throughout the life of the church: Elders Pybus, John Weaver, James D. Cole, Joshua Yates, ---Marcum, John Frost, J. W. Holman, J.J. Short, J.G. Woods, A.J. Willis, R.S Kirkland, ---Woodin, W.A. Cashion, J.M. Towry,---Stewart, and lastly, Elder W.A. Pinkstaff.

      Among the church clerks can be found the names of John Landess, Elias Willson Ashby, W.T. Furgason, William J. Landess and Charlie L. Stone.

      As new and different denominations established their churches, Concord began to lose membership to those churches. Finally in 1935, after about 120 to 125 years, it's doors were closed to worship service for need of members. The ruins of this old Concord Church stand today.
