Wilmington in New Castle County, Delaware — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Bethel A.M.E. Church
In 1853 the congregation relocated to a site at 6th and Penn Streets. They continued to worship there until 1865, when their need for a larger building led them to purchase the present site, where the Zion Evangelical German Lutheran Church then stood. The old building was used until 1878, when it was demolished and a new structure was built here.
