Union Baptist Church. later named the First Baptist Church of Ashland, was founded with 23 charter members in 1865, six years before the town was incorporated. Members met in a log cabin in the southwestern part of Ashland. From 1867-1914 the congregation met in three other structures. In 1914 members dedicated a red brick structure with yellow brick trim and
stained glass windows. The building reflected the rapid growth the church experienced during the 20th century. The building served the congregation for over 61 years with the last service being held on October 26, 1975.

century of service by the church and a renewed focus on the spiritual needs of the members of the community.
