Corinthian Baptist Church of Newport

New House of Worship

Article from The Cincinnati Daily Gazette, November 29, 1872


The Corinthian Baptist Church (colored) have recently fitted up
and now occupy a small but comfortable house for divine worship on
Robert Street.  Mr. B Jones, an earnest and eloquent speaker, is their
pastor.  At a meeting of this church, Thursday evening November 21,
a resolution was unanimously adopted returning thanks to the citizens
of Newport for the free use of the Court House for some months
past as a place of meeting, and also for the liberality of the citizens
in contributing means to enable them to procure a house of
worship of their own.  They also by resolution, returned thanks to
the firm of Davis and Boal, for the donation of a stove to
warm the church. 

The circumstances of these people have been
very much improved during the past few years.  they have a neat
and comfortable school house on Southgate street, and a
flourishing school, taught by a competent teacher, and
under the control of the School Board of the city of Newport.
