Text Coming Soon!


In 1808 the Unity Baptist congregation was organized in Harlansburg and initially held services in private homes. They soon began sharing a log cabin church with Methodists and Lutherans along Old Perry Highway (now Church Road). The Baptists later purchased some property just across the street and laid out their own cemetery in 1848 and then erected a small brick church in 1850. An addition was added to the building in 1977 and the Unity Baptist Church is still in active service today. (May 2012)
