The Mount Moriah Baptist Church was organized in 1819. The church's first building, was located at the Mount Moriah Cemetery site, one mile east of Mt. Eden on Mt Eden Cemetery Road.
In 1880 the church was torn down and a new church was built in Mt. Eden. The cemetery was incorporated April 14, 1903 as the Mount Moriah Cemetery Co.
The present Mount Moriah Baptist Church building was built in 1924. The parsonage was built in 1953.
The Church has been maintaining the cemetery off and on since it was organized.
Original Mount Moriah Baptist Church
<-NO KNOWN PICTURE HAS BEEN FOUND->
Mt. Eden has three houses of worship, the Baptist,
Christian and Pentecostal. The Baptists are the oldest congregation
and were long the largest. Their original location was originally
east of town on property donated by Jake Hedden. The church was
named Mt. Moriah and its surrounding graveyard is now Mt. Moriah
Cemetery. The church was later moved to the main street of the town
on property donated by Peter Snider. That building stood as a
landmark of the town until the early 1920's when it was replaced by
a more modern but far less charming structure. A few old timers yet
remember the old pink brick building with its attractive spired
vestibule tower and bell in front, its double door side entrance and
its pointed gothic windows with affection.
