Jerusalem Baptist Church

Brief History

Jerusalem Baptist Church has long provided blacks with spiritual, moral, and social leadership in this former steel-making community. Founded in 1897, this congregation represents the cohesiveness of blacks in Duquesne and is a popular historic and religious landmark for blacks in the city. The current structure was constructed in 1919, with a 1972 addition.
