Old Church Photos

History:The Salem Baptist Church in Gumeracha is the oldest Baptist church in South Australia that has been continuously used for worship. The original church was built in 1846 and the main extension was added in 1862. 

This is a pre 1900 photo of the church

This Photo was taken in 1900, notice the galvanised iron roof, 
compared to the shingles in the first photo and the addition to the rear.

This photo was taken some time later but before the church hall was 
built in the 1950’s
