Circle Hill Baptist Church - Parramore Community

This is Circle Hill Baptist Church, located in the Parramore community near Two Egg.

The church was founded during the late 1800s by residents of the surrounding area. Originally formed under a brush arbor, the church is one of the oldest still functioning Baptist churches in its area of the county.

The original brush arbor was replaced by a series of wooden structures that eventually gave way to the sanctuary now in use.

A center of activity for residents of the "lost town" of Parramore, Circle Hill survived even though the small riverboat port eventually faded away. The church is still active today.

Is That the Baptist Church on Sweet Pond Road? My grandmother, Maude, grandfather, Willie Everett, brother, Benjamin, and father, Willie Everett Jr., all Parramores, lie in the yard behind that church.

Thank you very much for the post. Circle Hill Church is located on Circle Hill Road. There is one that looks very similar on Sweet Pond, but I can't remember the name of the top of my head.

Glad to have you reading!
