Houston Baptist Church and its adjoining cemetery were organized in 1886 under the leadership of Reverend Ulysses L. Houston, minister of First Bryan Baptist Church in Savannah. A significant leader in the African-American community, Houston attended the meeting at General Sherman's Savannah headquarters in January 1865 that resulted in Special Field Order No. 15 (the redistribution of confiscated coastal land in 40-acre tracts to newly freed blacks). Houston also served a term in Georgia's Reconstruction legislature.
