Where the (607) sign is, is where Salem Church WAS...



Salem Primitive Baptist Church was northeast on County Road #607...
follow the (607) to the right, and up (in this view)
{Without going to Rock Mills, or Bacon Level}

From HWY431 turn right on Bud Cummins Road.
It crosses a RR Track, and splits (where this view has 680)
Follow the right hand split to go to Bacon Level,
Follow the left hand split to go to 18, and come-in the back way
to the Salem Primitive Church Cemetery.  From the split in the road,
go forward, until you cannot go forward,  turn right, then left on to a dirt road.
If you reach a paved road, look left, and that is where the church was.
(But, you would have gone too far!)
The Cemetery is up the embankment on the side of the road on
your left (if you have come in the back way.)

SALEM PRIMITIVE BAPTIST CHURCH CEMETERY, Near Welch, Chambers County, Alabama
Made available to The USGenWeb Archives by William Morgan - FlaHistory@aol.com

The Salem Primitive Baptist Church is no longer in existence. The congregation disbanded in
the early 1900's, and joined neighboring churches at Mt. Pisgah and Lanett. The cemetery is
about 100 feet from a dirt road leading to the former site of the church building. It is
surrounded by a fence and is fairly-well maintained, although many of the markers are illegible
after years of exposure to the elements.
