Description: An Old School Baptist Church east of Bethel, near the Tiger Fork line, six miles north and five miles east of Shelbyville; organized by Henry Louthan and his followers (See Looney's Creek Mt. Zion Church). A meeting house was built in 1846.

It is known by various names: Primitive Baptist Church, Hardshell Baptist, Old School Baptist. The church is still active. (HIST. SHELBY 1884, 816, 817, 882, 886; HIST. SHELBY 1911, 182, 183; HIST.
