Bethbirei Church congregation, Marshall County’s oldest church, outdates the county by 26 years.
The Bethbirei Presbyterian Church is the oldest active church in Marshall County Tennessee dating back to 1810, before the counties establishment in 1836.
The church was founded by Pastor Samuel Finley after initially preaching atop a large limestone rock on the property. The original church was a one room log cabin eventually replaced by the “new” church pictured, built in 1882.
