Baptist historical markers in Rusk County

I have found at least a dozen Baptist churches in Rusk County have historical markers:

Antioch (Baptist Church and Community)
Arlam Baptist Church
First Baptist Church of Henderson
Forest Home Baptist Church
Liberty Missionary Baptist Church
Mission Springs Baptist Church
New Prospect Baptist Church & Cemetery
Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church
Sardis Baptist Church
Smyrna Baptist Church
Sulphur Springs Missionary Baptist Church
Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church & Cemetery

In addition, the Campground Cemetery marker mentions that the "Mt. Zion Baptist Association, composed of thirteen area Baptist churches, was organized on this property in 1857" and the Redland Church marker mentions Smyrna Baptist Church.

The information on these markers can be found by searching the Texas Historical Commission historical marker atlas.
