SITE #23: Silver Spring Baptist Church

In 1874, African-American Pendleton residents began this church (23A), named for the spring on the property. Many youth received their early education here, including Jane Hunter, who went on to found the Phillis Wheatley Association. Reconstruction of the site will house the Cultural Center of Pendleton upon completion. The congregation worships on N. Mechanic Street in the current church building (23B) completed in 1962.
