This Gothic Revival style church was built in 1897 by a member of the famous Edenton Badham family of carpenters (Hannibal Badham, Jr.). The Church is one of the oldest Church buildings of African American heritage still standing in North Carolina. Martin Luther King, as well as other prominent Dignitaries, have spoken at this Church. In 2003, Hurricane Isabel caused a flood of water four feet deep that surged around the foundation of the building and rendered the church unsafe for use. The Congregation has spent years (since 2003) applying for various Grants that would help save the historic structure. Throughout this process, metal bracing was utilized to stabilize the structure temporarily. In 2017, Roland was hired to determine the feasibility of and approximate cost of restoring the Church. This required a thorough inspection of the existing foundation masonry, the timber floor framing, stud walls, and roof trusses. The next Phase of this Project completed by Roland included Contract Documents for the required repairs, including the replacement of damaged structural members, reinforcement of members, and connections and restoration of finishes. Roland worked with the Church, Edenton Historic Commission, and the National Trust.
