Abstract:
The Hunting Quarters Primitive Baptist Church was first organized in Hunting Quarters Township in 1829. Constructed at Nelson Bay, the Meeting House welcomed members of the Congregation from Portsmouth Island, Cedar Island, Atlantic, and Davis Shore. Following the Civil War, the community relocated to the town of Atlantic. When the building was destroyed in 1918 by a tornado, it was rebuilt further down the road. The congregation continued to meet until the 1960s, however it was a community in decline. In 2006, the Meeting House remained in poor condition. Thanks to efforts from local historians and community members, however, the structure has been repaired and is currently used for history meetings.

Abstract:
First organized in 1790, Hadnot Creek Primitive Baptist Church is Carteret County’s oldest church society in continuous service. The building, located on Highway 58, was erected in 1815 for the congregation. Constructed from pine and other local tree species, many elements of initial construction can be seen in the Church’s interior. Today, services are only held twice a year to commemorate the first congregation. There is an ongoing effort in the community to restore the grounds and Church to their 1815 condition.
