Etowah Baptist Church was established September 22, 1887 when the property on which the church and cemetery are located was given by Daniel Heyden for the purpose of organizing and building a Baptist Church for the community. The first church was a one room building. Sunday school and the Fellowship Hall were added at a much later time. The earliest record available for the church is 1915 at which time Rev. W. T. Dowdy was the pastor. The members at that time consisted of thirty males and thirty-six females. The members were seated on opposite sides of the church, males on one side and females on the other side. The seats were make of rough lumber. Rev. Dowdy preached at Etowah for twenty years or more, many times traveling from Dahlonega by horse and buggy, through rain or snow, or hot, dry weather. The cemetery is very well maintained. Photographed on August 3, 2006.
