In 1866 Laura Smith Haviland, a former abolitionist, persuaded several African Americans in Washington, DC. to migrate to Adrian. Three years later the Reverend A. I. J. Jackson led the settlers in founding the Second Baptist Church. The congregation worshipped in a hall in Adrian until 1880 when it purchased the present site. The house located on this site was converted to a sanctuary. In 1900 this wood frame church was erected. Descendants of the founding families continue to worship here.
