 A Condensed History 
The Green Hill Churchof Christ began meetingin 1909 in a borrowed oneroom school house locatedabout one mile west of thepresent building. Families which began this work here were Esq. Jim Adams, aMrs. Bass and her daughter,Flossie (Mrs. Will Burlington)of Donelson, Bob High andfamily, Mrs. W.T. Hunter(grandmother of EdwardRice) and daughters, Charlie Jackson, Jeff Jones familyfrom Tulip Grove, Miss AddLigon, Mr. Jeff Mabry andfamily, Miss Kate McDaniel,and Mr. Jim Smith. BrotherBob High was the onlyleader in the congregationfor many years. He led theprayers, singing, served thetable for the Lord’s Supper,and taught the class.
By 1920, thecongregation had outgrownthe borrowed school house.It became apparent that amore spacious building withcomplete amenities wasneeded. At that time theybought a church buildingnearby that had been erectedby a Methodist congregationand then abandoned forlack of membership. It wasa one room frame, about 25’  x 40’, heated by two coalburning stoves, and lightedby kerosene lamps. Thelamps were used only duringthe annual meeting as there were no night worshipservices. In July of 1924,gas lamps replaced thekerosene lamps. In Augustof 1926, electricity becameavailable and electric lights were installed. In 1941, it was decided to add threeSunday School rooms to therear of the auditorium.As there was not abapistry in the building,most baptisms wereperformed in Cedar Creekbehind the house of Bro.Granville Goodall. InMay of 1945, Bro. N.B.Nokes proposed to donatetoward a new building,provided the remainderof the congregation wouldraise matching funds. Thisproposition was consideredand accepted. In March of 1950, construction began.On October 15, 1950, thecongregation moved into thenew building.When the presentauditorium and eightoriginal basement classrooms were erected in 1950,it was thought to be largeenough for future growthfor the next
fty years. By1967, it became apparentthat future expansion forour educational facilities was necessary. Thirteenclass rooms, two rest rooms,two dressing rooms, anda nursery were added.East and West wings wereadded to the auditorium in1975, doubling the seatingcapacity.

agpole where theyoffered prayers.He noted thestudents and staff “wantto remember her in apositive light and want to dodifferent memorials for herand her family. There aresome emotional studentsand some emotionalteachers (here). You’re neverprepared. She was a greatperson and had such animpact on our students.She inspired some of thesestudents to be thankful andto live up to their potential.”Whited’s familyreleased a statement whichsaid “Kellie Whited’s lifehas touched countlesspeople across this countryand especially in thiscounty. She lived her lifeas an inspiration to all. Themajority of her life outsidethe home was spent atWilson Central High Schoolas a guidance counselor.Many of these young peopleare receiving a collegeeducation today because of her untiring dedication toher profession. Along withbeing a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, sister,daughter-in-law and sister-in-law, Kellie was involvedin many activities such as:-- a Sunday School teacherat Fairview Church andfriend to many there.
