  • 36 Memorials added (89% photographed)

The Old Baptist Church Cemetery is located on Musser Lane beside the Delaware Run Wesleyan Church. The land was purchased from Abraham Sterner and his wife for the sum of forty dollars. The first church was erected and dedicated June 5, 1847 and known as The Union Baptist Church. The services were held here until 1871, when a new church in Watsontown was established.

The original structure is no longer there, and the land was purchased by the Pilgrim Holiness church, and then Delaware Run Wesleyan.

Photo of the Pilgrim Holiness church is courtesy of Robert Finch, son of Rev Finch, who was minister there from 1946-1956.
