Market Street Chapel (now Private residence)

The Market Street Chapel was built in 1855 by the Bridge Street Presbyterian Church near the old Presbyterian Graveyard, now the Volta Street Playground. It was built in half-timber Gothic style and once included a bell tower. The Chapel was used as a mission field for African Americans living in the area until the population west of Wisconsin Avenue substantially decreased. The Chapel was sold in 1925 and became a private residence.
