Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-40
Building/structure dates: 1912 initial construction

Building/structure dates: 1930 subsequent work
Significance: This structure with its high hipped roof was built as a church in 1912 and housed two different black congregations until the 1960s. The exposed brick was plastered over in the 1970s before its sale to an artist who converted it for use as a studio. The height of the building and its four large arched, grilled windows make it a dominant anchor at the southern end of S. Convent Ave.
