On this site prior to 1745 the Church of England's
Raleigh Parish established Sandy River Chapel.
Construction was completed on a new wooden
church by 1765, some of which is believed to
survive within the present building. In 1782 several
different denominations began using it as a
meetinghouse. It became Sharon Baptist Church
in Oct. 1827 with the Rev. Daniel Witt as its first
minister. Witt and his boyhood friend Jeremiah
Jeter were the first missionaries for the Baptist
General Association of Virginia, conducting
reaching tours in eastern and western Virginia
in 1823. Witt served as pastor here until his
death in 1871 and is buried here.
