Significance: This church is regarded as the mother church for black Baptists in West Virginia. The congregation was formally organized circa 1852. Among its early members was Booker T. Washington, who came back to Malden after the Civil War and served as the church clerk and Sunday School leader in the late 1870s. The building was erected in 1872 and remains largely unchanged from its original condition. The building was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and is one of three structures rated as pivotal in the Malden Historic District.
