 Elizabeth Baptist Church, Shelby, Cleveland County, North Carolina, USA


Latitude: 35.290013188270564, Longitude: -81.49168968200683
Elizabeth Baptist Church

Notes:
Named after Elizabeth Love Wilson. She spent many hours along the ridge under a great oak where she watched over cattle in the pasture. This was her place for quiet contemplation. She and a neighbor lady were worried and sought to right wrongs growing from industry and development along nearby bottom land. Their prayers were answered when Elizabeth stepped forward and donated land for the construction of a church. And named in her honor, Elizabeth Baptist Church stands as the spiritual home for many generations raised in eastern Shelby, North Carolina.
