BEDFORD HILLS, N.Y. -- A new exhibit explores the history of Antioch Baptist Church in Bedford Hills.

An opening reception recently featured a choir and talk by the Rev. Merle D. McJunkin, pastor.

The history of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church dates to 1887, when several African-American families living in or near Bedford Center began meeting in their homes for praise and worship service.
