Floyd Chapel Baptist Church has a long history as a safe haven for black worshipers in Stockbridge. It was moved to its present location in 1878. The current church was erected in 1949. Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. worshiped at the wooden church that existed at the site with his mother Delia Lindsay King during his childhood. He was ordained and preached his first sermon at Floyd Chapel. King, Sr. would later succeed Rev. A.D. Williams as pastor of Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church.

Stockbridge unveiled the M.L. King Sr. Heritage Trail in 2015, and a marker stands in front of Floyd Chapel to honor his legacy. Visit nearby Stockbridge City Hall (4640 N. Henry Blvd., Stockbridge, GA 30281) to see a commemorative plaque that acknowledges the King family legacy.
