Crooked Creek Baptist Church
near Iola, Illinois


The old building has been torn down and a new one constructed, in late 2010 and early 2011

 


"... The Old Baptists, among whom were Enoch Sceife and wife, Jephtha Allen and wife, Levi Daniels and others were early organized by Rev. Whiteley. They built their first church house near the center of the township on Crooked Creek. This house was burned, and they erected another near the north line of the township, which is still standing, and where they continue to hold occasional service."
[pg. 427, History of Wayne and Clay Counties, Illinois; Chicago :: Globe Pub. Co., 1884]
