Willingham Spring Baptist Church

The small wooden Baptist Church was built between 1911 and 1914 on land donated by Wilson Willingham. In 1999 a Texas State Historical Marker was placed at the building. Honored on the inscription are farmers Bennie Brooks, John, and Zola Kidd Lankford, Mart and Minnie Brinegar Van Dyke, H. L. and Clemmie Kidd Thomas and Arthur and Eula Housewright who helped build the structure. Hanna Elizabeth Kidd Myers is said to have driven the first nail for the church building. The surrounding community came together in 1950 to revitalize the church and a tabernacle was added for open air meetings.  Over the years Willingham Spring Church experienced declining membership and services haven’t been held in the historic building for several years. Today the building lies ready and waiting for future generations to make use of it.
