WELCOME TO ROANOKE SALEM!!!
Roanoke Salem Missionary Baptist Church is the oldest Black Church in the south
end of Northampton County. It was founded before the smoke had cleared the
battlefields of the American Civil War. In 1866, under a Bush Arbor, a few members
of Elam Baptist Church withdrew and organized what was to be known as the
Roanoke Salem Missionary Baptist Church, located just off Highway #186 between
Garysburg, NC and Gumberry, NC.
