Inscription. In 1925, Reverend J. Edward Nash (1868-1957) and his wife Frances Jackson Nash (1895-1987) purchased this Queen Anne home, built ca. 1900, in what was a culturally diverse neighborhood. In 1926 Rev. and Mrs. Nash welcomed the birth of Jesse E. Nash, Jr. Rev. Nash was the pastor of the Michigan Street Baptist Church from 1892 to 1953. The Nashes were prominent leaders in the African-American community and hosted many notable African-American guests in their home. Rev. and Mrs. Nash are credited with championing the twentieth century Civil Rights Movement both nationally and locally from this location. The Nash House is recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
