First Baptist Church Hodgenville celebrated its 130th anniversary Sunday morning. The first church was built downtown on March 30, 1881 on a plot of ground that was purchased from Samuel and Matilda Skaggs, Simon Quinn, George Morris and Harrison Patton, trustees, for the price of $200. The church was built and cost our forefathers $2,010 and out of that amount George Thurman made over a third of the said $2,000. During that time, the church had no regular pastor, but a man named Rev. Taylor preached once a month until a regular pastor was called. Rev. W.W. Wheeler was called in 1886.
