The Blue Ridge Community Church
Blue Ridge Baptist Church
Falls County, Texas
The church was organized in 1859 by 11 charter members. Worship has been held regularly since. Z.N. Morrell and Judge R.E.B. Baylor were among the early missionaries holding services in the settler's log cabins.
George Harlan deeded 28 acres for the church, school and cemetery in 1873. The land is part of a grant given by Mexico in 1835 to his father, Doctor Isaiah Harlan. The first church building also housed an early school. Church has sponsored annual "May Day Singing" since 1887. Descendants still attend. The third (present) sanctuary was build in 1908. It has been a recorded Texas Historic Landmark since 1970.
