About

This African-American Church was the center of the neighborhood until about a hundred years ago, and now lies in rubble. According to an article about people working to preserve it, in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 10/16/16, at pp. B1, 9, "Its cemetery was the resting place of at least 80 people, including several Civil War veterans." There is a little bit about it on the Web; Google the church name and "Bacton Hill Road."

The photo I took of a map found in a local antique store shows, I believe, this AME church. It is below the word Lewis, just right of center on the map, as "AME Ch." The map was from 1883.
