National Baptist Memorial Church
National Baptist Memorial Church (1501 Columbia Road NW) is located at the crossroads of Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant. It is across the street from All Souls, Unitarian and kitty corner from the Scottish Rite Temple and the King Peace Center (of which I will post a picture next week.) Unfortunately, the internet is yielding no information about this architecturally prominent church among the churches of 16th Street, though I did find a brief mention that the church is over 100 years old. Beyond that, nothing.
Anyone in Meridian Hill, Columbia Heights, or Mount Pleasant know anything about this house of worship?
