Scope and Contents

This collection consists of a ledger book used for recording minutes of the annual meetings of the Caddo River Baptist Association in Montgomery County, Arkansas. The book is 15 by 6 inches. It contains the handwritten minutes, plus statistical charts, for each year from 1853 to 1881, and partial minutes for 1882 and 1897 to 1898.


Biographical Information

The Caddo River Baptist Association was organized in 1853, and held its first meeting October 8-10 of that year. The first entry in the minute book records that organizational meeting. A moderator and a clerk were chosen, and committees were appointed to draft a constitution and the articles of faith. Both of these documents are included in the book, along with the detailed minutes.

Five churches were represented at the inaugural meeting, three in Montgomery County, and one each in Polk and Clark Counties. For each annual meeting, a chart is given showing statistics from the participating churches. The last chart included in this minute book, for 1898, lists twenty-two participating churches.

The Caddo River Baptist Association continues today as a cooperative group of Southern Baptist Churches in the Montgomery County area, with an office in Mt. Ida, Arkansas.
