In April, 1941 an acre of land was purchased from Evelyn Wilson for ten dollars, ground breaking was held and construction started on the third facility to be home to Wilson’s Mills Baptist Church. The church building was dedicated on August 27, 1944 with the Reverend George McLeod Bryan preaching the dedication sermon.
From that point to the present, the demographics of Wilson’s Mills have certainly changed. Gone by the wayside are most of the family farms that once dotted the community. In their place, God has sent people and these people have built homes and neighborhoods have sprouted all around. God has opened up a mission field and these fields are now “white unto harvest” with men, women, boys and girls who are waiting to hear the Gospel message.
