Ephesus Baptist Church Cemetery

Ephesus was formed in 1857 and moved to its present day location in 1868. The sanctuary in use today was built in 1927; the 1868 building was first sold to Lincolnville AME church and then donated to the NC State Fairgrounds. (See links below for more of the church's history)

According to Shirley Olson the church has about 1/3 of 1000 burial plots filled. There are two sections of the cemetery, the main, large section and a smaller section across the parking lot directly beside the church building. I almost missed it.
