Viney Fork Baptist Church
is a Southern Baptist Church established in 1797.
During the period of 1780-1790, there was a great migratory movement from Virginia to Kentucky. A group of Primitive Baptists left Virginia in December 1780, with their minister, Robert Elkin. Also in this group were Peter Woods and Christopher Harris, Sr., along with his 17 children. because of Indian raids in Kentucky, the group rested at Holston until 1783, raising three crops of corn. They then moved to Craig Station in Lincoln County, Kentucky.
