On this site slaves gathered between 1861-1865. They built a brush arbor church, worshipped God and became a faithful congregation. On December 5, 1881, Rev. John L. Bell and four other church leaders purchased one acre of this land for eleven dollars and called themselves the New School Baptist Church. George W. Thomas helped erect a wooden, steepled church which was re-named Neabsco Baptist Church. The building was used also to educate children of former slaves and free persons of color. This church has undergone two renovations.

Hand-hewn timbers below the flooring of the present church are silent reminders of the toil of many persons who held to a dream during troubled times.
