The oldest known surviving African-American church in the state is the 1861 St. Philip's Moravian Church in Winston- Salem. In 1989, a group of community leaders and preservationists, known as the Ad Hoc Committee for the Preservation of St. Philip's, formed to save the old church. In 1991, St. Philip's was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Designed by Frederic William Marshall, the Home Moravian Church in Winston-Salem is celebrating 200 years of history. Van Horn describes the various parts of the church, including roof tiles, railings, and bells, and who made them.
