Reedy River Baptist Church

     Reedy River was formed about 1778 and originally was called Head of Enoree Baptist Church.
     It formerly was located a few miles north of what is now Travelers Rest and moved to its current location in 1819.
     While the name Reedy River was used in some associational minutes years earlier,  the name wasn't officially changed until 1846.
 In 1910, a new church building was erected. Another building program in 1949 built a new sanctuary in front of the previous one, with the old sanctuary being converted to educational space. An educational wing was completed in 1958. The sanctuary has been enlarged and remodeled since then.
     Worship services were only held one or two Sundays per month until the first full-time pastor was called in the early 1940s.
 Several existing churches were formed out of Reedy River, including Berea First and Ebenezer.
     This information was taken from a church history written by J. Glen Clayton and included in the 1984 church directory
