Indian River Baptist Church
The Indian River Baptist Church was built in 1853 by architect Norman Ward. It is a historic wooden Italianate/Greek Revival structure located on Rt. 187 in the Indian River section of Addison. On June 23, 1988 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently a privately owned property not used for religious purposes.

The Church on the Hill
The earliest recorded church structure in Addison was built in 1789 on the site of the present church and was called the Union Evangelical Meeting House. In 1825 the Addison Baptist Church Society was established and took over the building. During a heavy gale wind in 1839 the first church building was destroyed and a new building was completed the same year on the same site. The new larger church had a seating capacity of 600. The new church was struck by lightening in June of 1860 and was totally destroyed.
Funds were raised through contributions from the townspeople and the present structure was erected with the understanding that the building would be available to all denominations, though the Baptist Society had first right to use it. Baptist services were held there until 1951 when it closed. The building was reopened in 1976 with nondenominational services held. The last congregation to use the church was the Assembly of God. In 1996 the church was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Recently the last of the Assembly of God congregation signed the property over to The Friends of the Church on the Hill organization. Now the group can apply for grants to restore the church for non religious community use. The Friends of the Church on the Hill meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month. There is more historical information listed in the organizations section of this website.
