Riverton Churches

    1. Hi, Dorothy – Members of the African Methodist Episcopal church first met in a room on the second floor of the Roberts Store that once stood on the point of Main and Howard Streets. In 1896 they acquired a small building at 3rd and Penn Sts. and soon enlarged it by extending it back to the limit of their property. Although the Mt. Zion AME church was dedicated in August of 1909, I have no vintage postcard images of it to display. I do include Mt. Zion in the list of Community Links (https://rivertonhistory.com/links/) and would welcome a an old photograph or postcard to include with the others. Thank you for your interest. – John McCormick, Editor
