San Antonio : St. Paul United Methodist Church

With a congregation first organized in 1866, St. Paul United Methodist Church is one of the oldest African American churches in San Antonio. The first congregation comprised former slaves and freedmen from Paine Chapel Methodist Episcopal Church. The current building, easily recognizable by the striking octagonal towers that flank the main doors, was constructed in 1922. The United Methodist Church has designated St. Paul United Methodist Church as its 397th historical site.
