The Lone Star Baptist Church (also known as the Redfield Historical Society Building) is a historic building at 620 Sheridan Road in Redfield, Arkansas.

The building's exterior is noted for its minimal decoration, and it was nominated for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places because it is an excellent example of an early twentieth century rural church. It was listed on the National Register in 2005.

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 build 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]
