The Auburn Baptist church was organized September 22, 1882, near Harmony Grove
Academy, two miles from the town of Auburn, and for eleven years remained there
under the name of Shady Grove.
When constituted the church had the following members:
J. N. Bagwell, W. B. Stephens, G. W. Stephens, Mary A. Bagwell, Nancy Bagwell,
and L. F. Stephens.
The church was moved to Auburn in 1893, and the present building erected. It is
worth about $1,000.
This church is one of the most important in the county, made so because of the
fact that Perry-Rainey Institute, a Baptist institution, is located at Auburn,
and most of its students attend the various religious exercises of the church.
For a long time Mr. J. S. Blakey was superintendent of the Sunday school, and
no school ever had a better one.
The present officers of the school are: L. P. Green, superintendent, H. H.
Cooper, Jr., assistant superintendent, Mavelle Barnett, secretary. Teachers:
Mrs. W. C. Carlton, W. C. Carlton, Mrs. Anna Williams, Lee Stewart, Miss May
Miller, Miss Bonnie Mae Sims, Solomon Dowis. The enrollment is 250.
