Sharon Missionary Baptist Church Western Oklahoma

I love old churches and old buildings. One day on a drive through the Western Oklahoma countryside I saw this awesome old church in Washita County. The Sharon Missionary Baptist Church land donated by Prairie Pioneers B.E. and Virginia Grant Bryant January 7, 1910. Original Church 1909-1950. Present Church built 1951.
The sign over the door looks like they might have saved a piece out of the original church and posted it over the door. The date on the sign says 1890.
This granite monument is a tribute to B.E. Bryant who donated the land.

This side of the monument shows the original church and the present day church.
