On the 4th day of August 1801, Sallie Tait of Caswell County, NC deeded the site for Bush Arbor Primitive Baptist Church and its cemetery “to the Baptist now under pastoral care of Barzillai Graves, known as North Country Line Church, for love and good will, 1 acre for purpose of erecting a meeting house and carrying on public worship” (Caswell County NC Deed Book M, page 146). Originally known as Bush Arbor Baptist Meeting House, the church was organized by 1806. The present brick church building was erected amongst a grove of century old oak trees in 1948 and is the third known Bush Arbor church building on this site. The well-maintained cemetery, located adjacent to the church, is still in use today. The first known burial in the church cemetery is 1807.
