St. Philip's Church - Lot 104

This photograph shows the south end of Church Street in Salem and includes rare images of the African American log church, built in 1823 (seen left of the two-story house with colonnade porches), and the brick church, St. Philip’s (center), which replaced the log church in 1861. In these two churches, both Moravian and non-Moravian African Americans worshipped together under the direction of white pastors.
