Historical note:

            The Third Baptist Church was set off from the First Baptist Church in Providence in 1820. The church was located at the corner of Hope and Wicken Streets in the Fox Point neighborhood. It disappears from the Providence directories in the mid-1870s.

            The more complete minute book was purchased in 1908 from C.F. Libbie. The earlier minute book and the Sunday School history were donated in 1916 by Norman Isham. The provenance of the death register is unknown, but it was part of the Printed Collection for many years before its transfer to the Manuscripts Division in 1993.
