Elizabeth Chapel

1026 East 10th Street​​

The Elizabeth Chapel CME church was originally constructed at 1026 E 10th Street in 1889.  The structure was torn down and reconstructed in the same location in 1910. The timber from the original chapel was used to construct the latest version. The Gothic Revival church served a vibrant African-American community located in the currently designated Tenth Street Historic District. Elizabeth Chapel was built just as the community was beginning to grow and was a focal point and meeting place for this lively and growing neighborhood. The structure was demolished in 1996 after vacancy in the neighborhood led to decreased church attendance and eventual disrepair.
