Beverly Morgan-Welch Director 1806, African Meeting House"This month, the oldest standing black church building in America will reopen its storied doors to the public following a decade-long restoration. It fascinates me how people feel when they walk in the place. The floorboards are 275 years old, so you are walking where Frederick Douglas walked, on these floorboards from the revolution.” Located on Joy Street in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, the African Meeting House is one of four historic sites that comprise the Museum of African American History, and undeniably the Museum’s crown jewel.
