the brick church. The congregation moved to Happy Hill and later to its current day location on Bon Air Avenue in northern Winston Salem.
The St. Philips brick church sat empty for nearly 40 years until, in 1989, Old Salem Museums & Gardens decided to restore the church as a way to
exhibit the African American story in Salem. The same year, Old Salem nominated the building for the National Register of Historic Places.
