Hope Baptist Church
Hope Baptist Church
Highbridge was not initially a hotbed of religious fervour. For many years small groups of people would gather in their own homes to worship, but by 1819 the local Baptists had saved enough to establish a proper place. This was a pretty spartan affair, with a central stove for heat and candles for lighting; baptisms were performed with water drawn from the only pump in the town.

As Highbridge grew so did the congregation; the church was rebuilt in 1867, with lots of other smaller alterations ongoing to this day.
