    Grew up in this chuch, wonderful memories of
    meals in the basement. Warren Carr was the minister then, a great voice and presence.
    Both of my parents services were there.

Watts Street Baptist Church, 1925

Watts Street Baptist Church was organized in 1923 to accomodate a growing Baptist community in north/west Durham that was somewhat far from First Baptist and Second/Temple Baptist.

The initial group raised funds for a sanctuary, which was built in the Gothic Revival style, using stone similar to that utilized for the wall constructed around now-East Campus.
