22. SILOAM BAPTIST CHURCH-[505 Washington Street]

Founded 1822, the present Greek Revival building dates from 1849. Located in the Church Parlor is the table around which the Domestic Mission Board (now the North American Mission Board) was organized. The structure was made of bricks fabricated by local slaves and included a balcony for the slaves who worshipped here. These same slaves established Berean Baptist Church. Siloam members were also instrumental in the founding of Judson College, Howard College, Marion Military Institute, and the Alabama Baptist.
