Homewood AME Zion Church

Brief History

Organized in 1871 as the first black church in Homewood, the Homewood AME Zion is an early example of cohesiveness and sophistication of blacks in Homewood at a time when blacks had few economic resources. The church’s first location was at Tioga and Dunfermline Streets. Its current structure was built in 1890.
