Baynes Baptist Church

Recognizing a need for a Baptist house of worship in the Baynes Community of Caswell County NC, a group gathered on Aug. 4, 1912 in a one-room schoolhouse near Baynes Store. Archibald “Archie” Alexander Baynes donated one acre of land on which to erect the one-room wooden church. The Masons of Caswell Lodge No. 539 laid the cornerstone of the church. The records indicate that the church was first named Baptist Memorial Church then change to Baynes Chapel Church and finally to the current name of Baynes Baptist Church. The first interment in the church cemetery was in 1923 however four gravestones with earlier dates where moved to the church cemetery from a nearby family cemetery.

Bush Arbor Primitive Baptist Church

On the 4th day of August 1801, Sallie Tait of Caswell County, NC deeded the site for Bush Arbor Primitive Baptist Church and its cemetery “to the Baptist now under pastoral care of Barzillai Graves, known as North Country Line Church, for love and good will, 1 acre for purpose of erecting a meeting house and carrying on public worship” (Caswell County NC Deed Book M, page 146). Originally known as Bush Arbor Baptist Meeting House, the church was organized by 1806. The present brick church building was erected amongst a grove of century old oak trees in 1948 and is the third known Bush Arbor church building on this site. The well-maintained cemetery, located adjacent to the church, is still in use today. The first known burial in the church cemetery is 1807.
