St. Paul AME Church

Brief History

In 1822, a class of African-American Methodists was formed in Uniontown under the charge of Rev. George Bollar, a regular minister sent out by the annual conference of the African Methodist Episcopal church. Meetings were held at the house of Mary Harmon on Morgantown Street for two years. Later, they were held at the house of Joseph Allen on the same street.
