Turner Memorial A.M.E. Church
The congregation, one of America's historically black churches, was founded in 1919 by members of the Saint Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church in Southwest Washington who wished to organize an African Methodist Episcopal congregation in the neighborhood where they lived. By the late 1940s, the congregation had outgrown the small building in which it met, and, after considering expansion plans, decided to purchase a synagogue building erected in 1908 by the Adas Israel Congregation, now known as the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue.
On March 1, 2003, after 52 years in the building at Sixth and I, the congregation dedicated its new building in Hyattsville.
