Historic Saint Philip AME Church

613 Martin Luther King Blvd.

National Historic Register

Saint Philip AME church was the first African Methodist Church in the state of Georgia. The church was organized by Rev. A.L. Stanford on June 16, 1865, at Savannah, Georgia.

After the church was destroyed in a storm in 1896, the congregation voted to move it to a more convenient location at West Broad and Charles Street. The present modern brick structure, built sometime between 1909 and 1916, is unique in being one of the first designed by an African American architect.

Open to the public.
