Bloomingdale Tour: 75 Rhode Island Avenue

Mount Bethel Baptist Church is among several congregations in Bloomingdale that moved into buildings originally constructed by white congregations. Mount Bethel bought this church in 1958, after outgrowing its original home at Second and V streets in neighboring LeDroit Park. By this time, the racial covenants that had limited the sale of property to whites were no longer legally enforceable.
