Bishop’s Memorial A.M.E. Church

Bishop’s Memorial A.M.E. Church was built in 1908 as the Woodrow Memorial Presbyterian Church, a tribute to Columbia Theological Seminary professor and administrator Dr. James Woodrow. In 1924, the Presbyterian Church vacated the property, which in 1929 was sold to Allen University and renamed Salters Memorial A.M.E. Church. In 1943, the church members changed their sanctuary’s name to Bishop’s Memorial A.M.E. Church.
