Come help celebrate 140 years. Contributed photo According to historical accounts, the city of Buffalo was born in 1871 in preparation for the International and Great Northern Railroads coming through the area. The railroad crews from Hearne and from Palestine met on the banks of Buffalo Creek in May 1872 and drove the last spike in that portion of the railway.

Not long follow- ing that historic event, in 1877, several believers met and formed a new church that would become First Baptist Church of Buffalo. One hundred and forty years later the church is planning an anniversary celebration on September 10. The morning service will incorporate welcoming former members and staff and following will be a catered meal in the Family Life Center.

Those on the planning committee are attempting to contact as many former church and staff members as possible to make them aware of this event. If you have names and/or addresses of anyone who may be interested in attending this celebration, please contact First Baptist Church at 903-322-4332.
