This congregation built the first Baptist church building in Richmond in 1802. Its second ediface at College and H (Broad) Streets (after 1819) was also the site of the Virginia Constitutional Convention of 1829-1830. The black congregation bought the church from its white members in 1841 when the latter moved to a new church at Broad and 12th Streets. It was constituted the First African Baptist Church on 3 October 1841. For more information see, THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, RICHMOND, 1780-1955: ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS OF SERVICE TO GOD AND MAN, by Blanche Sydnor White, 1955 and "Origin and History of the First African Church," in THE FIRST CENTURY OF THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, 1780-1880, edited by H.
