Picture of the original Union Missionary Baptist Church located in Kemper Springs community shot by Henry R. Leggette
Union Missionary Baptist Church that was on the front cover of my book. I was in Kemper Springs Community this week (Sept. 2006) and I shot a photo of the current church.
Please make a note about this photo. The small housing to the very right of the current church is to safe guard the old bell which was used many, many times in the old church. The expense for the installation was all provided by Omera Alexzine Baylor, Esther D. Baylor and Billy Mark Baylor, Jr.
