Notes
Survey number HABS WV-210-38
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-62).
Significance: This virtually unaltered church building was built on a lot donated by Nathan Slack following a "brush-arbor" revival in 1876. The bell is original and was formerly used for alarms when needed. This building, built four years after the nearby African Zion Baptist Church which it very closely resembles, makes a major contribution to the character of the historic district.
