History of Shiloh Baptist Church
Around 1869, plans were made to organize a church in Gunston, (Lorton) Virginia. Oral history passed down through the years tells us that before Shiloh was erected on land purchased on November 18, 1879 congregants may have walked to Shiloh Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia. In 1878, trustees Relius Allen and Archie Gilliam purchased one acre of land on Gunston Road and the first meeting was in a log cabin, located across the road from our present church. Reverend John Webb was believed to be the first pastor of the original church.
