St. Paul A.M.E. Church

The church building is an example of high Victorian Gothic Revival architecture with its abundance of ornamental and visual complexity. Founding members withdrew from Edenton Street Methodist Church in 1849 to establish the first separate African American congregation in Raleigh. The current brick building dates to 1910, built on the site of two previous church buildings.

Date: 1910
