Union Baptist Church

1219 Druid Hill Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21217

The Union Baptist Church was built in 1905 under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Harvey Johnson and financed entirely by African Americans. The congregation was formed in 1852, the fifth oldest African American congregation in Baltimore. In 1892, the church withdrew from the Maryland Baptist Union Association because of discrimination. Rev. Dr. Harvey Johnson, the church’s fifth pastor, then became involved in the Niagara Movement, predecessor of the NAACP. In 1906, Johnson successfully challenged Maryland’s separate car law by filing suit and winning against the B&O Railroad, predating the Freedom Riders by about six decades. The Union Baptist Church’s Gothic design features stain glass windows created by John LeFarge, the renowned artist known as the inventor of the art of using opalescent stained glass.
