Allensworth Things to Do: 24 reviews and 74 photos

The plaque reads:
Colonel Allensworth donated this property for a church to the Northern California Baptist Convention in August 1914. The Colonel's tragic death a month later spurred the community to build the church. Construction began in 1915, under the direction of Reverend J.L. Allen, a missionary pastor for the Baptist group. Reverend Allen led an impressive dedication of the completed church in March of 1916. Prior to the buildings demolition in 1967, the First Baptist Church had served its congregation for over forty years, providing a place of worship and a gathering place for graduations, weddings, and funerals.
