The exact date of the foundation of the church is unknown but is said to be around 1886. It was originally named New Hightower Baptist Church. It was always officially used as a normal congregation. But it was said to be, in the night, a bearer of satanic worship. This supposedly happened for over a century in tradition. There were several deaths as ritual sacrifices as well as drownings in the baptismal pool which still exists today. Eventually in the 1990's a teenage boy seeked vengeance on the members of the cult for using his father for one of these sacrifices, he and two accomplices proceeded to go out to the church in the night and burned it to the ground. There is no solid proof about the satanic practice, however there were numerous reports over the years of people lingering at the church in the dead of night and of several deaths in the area. It should also be noted that strangely, nearly all the graves in the church cemetery are of deaths either extremely old or extremely young... There has since been a need church built on the same grounds which is still use to this day. There is also a large oak tree which is rumored to be a bleeding tree which several people said to be hanged.
