VINTAGE POINT: First Baptist Church

IMG_0978

Farmington’s First Baptist Church, at Farmington Road and Shiawassee, was built in 1861 at a cost of $1,680. The intersection had been the main four corners of town until the 1850s, when Grand River became part of the stagecoach line—and the downtown moved south, to its current location.
