Brief History

Organized in 1912 under the leadership of Rosa Washington and at the home of Betty Sterling, St. Marks is one of the oldest black churches in Wilkinsburg and the oldest remaining black congregation in the borough. This church, long a social center for blacks in Wilkinsburg, continues to play an influential role in black social and political life. It was built in 1923.
