Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church Bloomington, June 9, 1940

Baptist Church, 1940.

Founded in October 1865 as South Hill Baptist Church, Mt Pisgah Baptist Church has played an important leadership role in the local African-American community for 150-plus years.
Seen here is Mt. Pisgah’s previous home at 701 S. Lee St., which the church built and opened in 1915-1916. About a decade ago Mt. Pisgah moved to a new and much-larger church building at 801 W. Market St. The Full Gospel Church of Praise now occupies the building shown here.
