    • A BRIEF HISTORY OF SHELLSFORD BAPTIST CHURCH

      Shellsford Baptist Church is one of the oldest active congregations in Warren County, Tennessee.

      Shellsford, located on the Collins River a short distance downstream from Buck Springs, was one of the earliest settlements in Warren County. The community got its name from the Shell family who settled here in the early 1800's near the ford of the river, hence the name Shellsford. James Shell established a grist mill at the Shellsford location, an exact date is not known. Shellsford, the old Shell mill, Buck Springs, and Shellsford Baptist Church became important in the history of early Warren County. Buck Springs, according to tradition, received its name as a result of the successful deer hunting of pioneer Jordan Sellars at the spring.

      The Shellsford Baptist Church was originally known as the Buck Springs Baptist Church and was sometimes further identified by its location "on Collins River." The congregation was established in 1810 as a result of a Brush Arbor meeting held by Reverend William Thompson and Reverend George Stubblefield, prominent Baptist ministers of that era.

      The original meeting house, built after the Brush Arbor meeting, was built of split logs. The church building consisted of one door, two windows and a fireplace. The first building stood until 1851 when it was replaced by a frame building. The present building was erected in 1947 and completed with the addition of a two story educational building in 1959.

      There are 35 HENNESSEE persons buried in this hallowed ground...

  • Notes 
    • Daddy D was a quiet and dignified man. As a young child, I didn't have the presence-of-mind to ask him about his life, come to think of it, what 6-year old child does? I do remember him as being very meticulous about his clothing - always cleaned and pressed. His white Stetson hat and cane. Later in life, those who knew him told me was a loving, gentle man. Wish I had conversed more with him...DAH
