Old Stone Church Boonesboro Kentucky by Brenda Salyers:
Since the late 18th Century, the structure at the end of Old Stone Church Road, has been the spiritual home to the original settlers and their slaves, followed by an African-American congregation which purchased the building in 1872.
The claim remains, Clark County’s Old Stone Church is the oldest church in Kentucky.
According to information from the Bluegrass Heritage Museum, the 40-by-60-foot building was constructed in the mid 1790s, with limestone quarried from about a quarter mile away.
The stone edifice replaced a log structure built three years earlier, complete with “loop holes” to allow for a defense against Native Americans. Those early leaders included Squire Boone, brother of frontiersman Daniel Boone.
Local legend has it Daniel Boone actually attended Providence Baptist Church, as the structure became known, but local historian Harry Enoch said he has found nothing to support that statement.
“Daniel Boone was not a known church-goer, period,” Enoch said. “By the time the church was built, he was gone.”
The church’s exact construction date is not known, though it was indicated on county records in 1793, Enoch said. The congregation can be traced back to 1784. Until the first log church was built, they met in people’s homes, including Capt. Billy Bush, who helped settle the area along the Kentucky River and the current border between Madison and Clark counties.
