History of Shiloh Baptist Church
In 1881 an organization of Topeka, Kansas residents, who had met for prayer meetings since 1879, was granted a charter to conduct public worship. That same year, the group bought land and began building on the Church's present site at 1201 Buchanan in the heart of what originally was known as Tennessee Town. In 1926, the original church structure was razed; a new building was erected on the same site.
