Built in 1905 and dedicated that year on October 8. The missionary couple in the photo are Harvey and Lucile Clarke. They served together in Kumamoto from 1899 to 1920. Their home church and association - First Baptist Atlanta and the Stone Mountain Association - paid for the construction of the building. Standing next to Harvey in this photo is Mutsuo Gotou. He pastored this church from 1896 to 1906. So this photo is either late 1905 or early 1906 - when the building was brand new.
