The Mount Zion First African Baptist Church was founded in 1867 after African-American parishioners of the Charlottesville Baptist Church petitioned for their own church. At the time, black congregations could only be presided over by a white minister.[1] The church was forced to move when Charlottesville went through its urban renewal period.[2]
