Allen Chapel AME Church

Brief History

This black congregation was founded in the 1860s in the Hill District at Arthurs Street. In 1889, it moved to Manchester as one of the first black churches in that community. Considered to be one of the most valuable community landmarks, this is one of the oldest AME churches on the North Side and has long served to unite blacks in Manchester through moral and social leadership.
