The first Methodist Church in Cades Cove was a crude log structure built around 1840. The Methodist Church that stands in the Cove today was constructed in 1902 and has two doors. The ladies entered through the door on the left; the men on the right; and they were seated accordingly, once inside.

Missionary Baptist Church
Our Price: $92.00

Group B

6 1/2"L X 4"W X 5 1/2"H

The Missionary Baptist Church was an offshoot of the first congregation in the Cove, the Primitive Baptist Church. These people were dismissed from the Primitive Baptist Congregation because they favored support of missions, which was a national issue for the baptists in 1839. The Missionary Baptist Church was built around 1894 and has a small cemetery near the church.

Established as a separate entity in 1829, the Primitive Baptist Church is the oldest established church in Cades Cove. The present building replaced the original log structure in 1887. Each of the churches in the Cove had their own burial ground. Since many of the pioneer settlers are burried there, the Primitive Baptist Cemetery is perhaps the oldest of the church cemeteries in the Cove.
