TitleWestport to Lose Oldest Church Building
AbstractSt. Luke's AME Church, at the corner of 43rd and Roanoke, will be demolished because of the widening of 43rd Street and the "general deterioration of the building". Organized soon after the Civil War to serve the surrounding area of ex-slaves, the congregation's current building was constructed in 1891.
