|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Calvary Baptist Church is located north of Salisbury about four and one half miles on what is known as E. Ridge Road and about one-eighth mile east of Old Mocksville Rd. The church was established with sixteen charter members, about 1871, under the leadership of Calvin Bessard from Jerusalem Baptist Church in Davie County. In the beginning, the church had a very difficult struggle financially, so the first meetings were held in a one-room log schoolhouse where the parsonage is now located.
