     Organized about 1871 as High Hill Missionary Baptist Church. Lumber for first building was hauled by oxen to site 3 miles north of present location. In 1873, a few months before railroad came through, leading to founding of Schulenburg, the structure was moved overland on rolling logs to this site. During 1885-1913, several faiths shared sanctuary, using the name Union Church. It was reorganized in 1927 as First Baptist Church. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-- 1972
