he Sims Chapel Baptist Church was organized on October 31, 1901 by Rev. J.C. Evans and others. Under the leadership of Mr. Bart Sims with the help of Mr. Press Quiller and Mr. George Alexander, the group purchased land on Clinton Highway, about a mile from the town of Whitmire on December 31, 1902. The church was completed in 1903 and named in honor of Mr. Bart Sims. Rev. J.C. Evans was named as the pastor. In the 1920’s the church’s front façade was altered to provide more space and improve the building’s appearance. The church building was a wooden structure, featuring two front steeples.
