The Lonsdale Baptist Church was located at Lonsdale Ave and Main Street in Lonsdale. It was constructed between 1843 and 1847. This church also received generous support and backing from the Lonsdale Company. Services were held in the company's school house while the churches (both the Baptist Church and Christ Church) were built. The church was sold to the town of Lincoln in 1910 and was used as the town hall. The building was moved further up Lonsdale Avenue and is still standing today, having been used for many years as a dance studio, it is now a day care center.   - Courtesy of Marcia Carr Carvalho
