Pisgah Forest Baptist Church

Pisgah Forest Baptist Church will be celebrating its 100th birthday in October. The church began as an outgrowth of a Union Sunday School that was organized by D.L. Braynard in his home in "Saw Mill Town" near the saw mill of Carr Lumber Company.

Braynard came to Pisgah Forest in 1913 as a sawyer for the Carr Lumber Company. He was a Methodist and a deeply religious man and had a great influence for good in the community. There were quite a few Baptists in the community and to be able to meet the needs of all the people, he organized a "Union" Sunday school using Union literature.
