The New Mt. Moriah Baptist Church is located at 13100 Woodward Avenue in Highland Park, Michigan in Metro Detroit. It was built in 1922 as the Trinity United Methodist Church, in the Gothic Revival style. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]

History[edit]

Trinity United Methodist was built by the Cass United Methodist Church of Detroit, as a mission church to serve membership in Highland Park who lived too far to travel the eight miles to Cass United.[2] The structure served as a Methodist church from its dedication in 1923 until 1978. In 1979, the New Mt. Moriah Baptist Church congregation moved into the building.[2]

In the 1950s the church had a mission for Japanese people.[3]

Architecture[edit]

The Gothic Revival style church is built from gray limestone.[2]
