From the COUNTY OF CHRISTIAN, Ky., edited by William Henry Perrin Oct.1884, page 306: "The Rock Bridge, another Baptist Church, was built about 1849-1850. It is a log structure, and about 10x25 feet in dimensions. Nothing has been gathered as to its present membership, and only that the Revs. Spurlin and Meacham were for a while its pastors.

The records for the Rock Bridge Church and cemetery have been lost, and no idea when or why they changed to the Methodist religion. The Church was abandoned sometime between 1994-1996.
