This item contains the minutes of the Welsh Tract Old School Baptist Church's bicentennial celebration. The Welsh Tract Old School Baptist Church was initially established in Wales among sixteen Baptists in the year 1701. Thomas Griffith was their first pastor, and the new congregation decided to move to the United States, arriving in September of 1701. They settled first near Philadelphia at Pennepek. The church experienced growth during this time and then in 1703 the church moved to New Castle County, Delaware, where they settled on land known as “Welsh Tract.” The church continued to grow and by the mid 1700s began to send members to start a number of churches in other regions of the United States. Welsh Tract Old School Baptist Church was one of five original churches to form the Philadelphia Association until 1794 when they along with a few other churches requested to join the Delaware Association. Welsh Tract is said to be the oldest Old School Baptist church in the United States.
