H-Pennsylvania is a network for scholars, teachers, archivists, librarians, and others interested in the history and culture of Pennsylvania.

As long time H-Pennsylvania list members can plainly see, we've undergone some changes, and there are more to come! But let's keep the conversation going and the information flowing. We still want all the CFP's, announcements, queries, and all other things Pennsylvanian that we loved on H-Pennsylvania.

The Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church resides on a parcel of land located on the corner of Sixth and Lombard Streets, that was purchased in 1791 by Richard Allen. The first structure was an old blacksmith shop which was converted into a place of worship and dedicated in 1794.  In 1805, a second larger structure and additional land were needed to accommodate the growing membership. By 1841, the third church was newer and built of bricks and stone.
