Old Providence Church

Built in 1790 on Howard's Creek in Clark County. Attended by Daniel Boone and church where several relatives were baptized. United Baptists formed here. 

     The 'Old Stone Meeting House' on Howards Lower Creek, Clark County, Ky., is said to be the oldest church that is now in existence between the Alleghany and the Rocky Mountains. 

Built before the year 1796 by a colony of Baptists who came from Virginia.
