The only known Arkansas example of an African-American church designed by an African-American architect, now a National Historic Landmark. A one-story brick structure built in 1905 from a Gothic Revival design by African-American architect Henry James Price. Dr. Elias Camp Morris, who served as pastor from 1879 until his death in 1922, national significance comes from his leadership of the National Baptist Convention, the largest African-American organization in the United States at the end of the 19th century.
