The Lone Star Baptist Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is located at 620 Sheridan Rd. in Redfield, Arkansas.

The building's exterior is noted for its minimal decoration, and it was nominated for inclusion on the National Register because it is an excellent example of an early twentieth century rural church.

History[edit]

A local African American Baptist congregation formed in 1890, and the church was built in 1901. The church was used as a school until material became available to built a school.

The church continued to operate until 1976. Church members deeded the building to the City of Redfield in 1993. The Redfield Historical Society maintains the building, and it is used for historical society meetings, weddings, public tours by appointment, and holiday choir performances.[2]
