Notes
Survey number HABS DC-242
Building/structure dates: 1884 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1904 subsequent work
Significance: This simple brick building with Gothic Revival details is typical of a number of Negro churches built in Georgetown during the latter half of the nineteenth century. It houses one of the oldest Negro congregations in the District of Columbia. (An earlier structure, built before 1830 and used by the congregation until 1880, was known as a station of the underground railroad around the time of the Civil War.)
