What follows is a small glimpse into the history of the African Methodist Episcopal Church,

which was built on the corner of Bank St. and Mechanic St. in Bradford in 1879.

The building still stands today.

I would like to thank Carol Frantz Monroe for her very generous donation of the 3 photographs in this collection.

I would also like to thank Dave Rathfon for his unparalleled internet newspaper search abilities.
