Description:
View of the Friendship Baptist Church at the corner of Mitchell Street and Haynes Street in Atlanta, Georgia.
Friendship Baptist Church is the oldest African American church in Atlanta. It was organized in 1866, and the congregation, being unable to buy property, worshipped in a boxcar until the current structure was built in the mid-1870s at the corner of Mitchell Street and Haynes Street in Atlanta, Georgia. The first class of Spelman College was held in the basement of the church in April 1881.
