St. Paul, 146 years of ministry in Dallas:
In the summer of 1873, a group of freedmen and freedwomen began meeting under a brush arbor on a vacant lot at the northeast end of North Dallas, now known as 1816 Routh Street. Construction of the current building began in 1913 and was completed by 1927. The two-to-three story red brick church is a rare surviving example in Dallas of an early twentieth-century, architect-designed African American church that incorporates the construction contributions of its African American membership and residents of the surrounding Freedman’s Town/North Dallas community. St. Paul is the oldest African American Methodist Church in Dallas, and the third oldest African American church to be founded in the Freedman’s Town/North Dallas neighborhood, now named Uptown. On December 27, 2016, St. Paul is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, for its architectural design and its ability to tell a few of the under-told stories of African American life and achievement between the years 1927 to 1966.
