Mount Tabor Baptist Church was originally organized towards the end of the 19th century. Very little is known about this church, except that it was on the same property as the current church and that it was destroyed on March 21, 1932 by a tornado that swept much of Bartow County. The church was not rebuilt until nine years later. In 1940, the people living in the area became concerned about not having a place of worship in their community and held “cottage prayer meetings” in the homes of community members for a year. The next year land was donated, and a church building was constructed. This building was used until the present one was built in the late 1950s-early 1960s. The church has since been remodeled and a fellowship hall and Sunday school classrooms have been added. The church cemetery is on the same property as the church. Mount Tabor Baptist Church is located at 3068 Old Alabama Road, Taylorsville, GA 30178, viewable on this map of Baptist Churches in Bartow County: https://goo.gl/maps/9uTux1G4ZvQ2.
