In two separate sources there is mention of a Baptist church being started sometime before 1855, but no records are known to exist.

In a building on the northeast corner of Clay and Mill Street was a building housing the Masonic Hall with a seminary called the “Daviess County Academy” on the first floor. The Rev. James Tuttle was teaching there and desired to establish a Baptist church. It was in this building that the First Baptist Church of Gallatin was constituted and organized in May, 1855 by elders R.C. Hall and Franklin Graves, who composed the ministerial council.
Elder R.C. Hill was chosen to be moderator and the constitutional sermon was preached
by Elder Franklin Graves, from the text “Upon this Rock will I Build My Church.”
