Billory Baptist Church History
Billory Baptist Church was founded in 1891 by Rev. J.E. Holley. The carpenter for the original building was a man by the name of Bill Lowery. As the story goes, lumber yards would send invoices to him, along with the wood, to be signed. When Bill would sign the invoices, his signature looked more like Billory and for the longest time, people thought that was his name. From there, people thought the church was named for him and so was born the name, "Billory Baptist Church."
