The white Greek Revival building directly behind the VCU Medical Center Westbound GRTC Pulse Station was the second location of First Baptist Church, which was established in 1780 with a mixed-race congregation. In 1841, the church’s white members sold the original church building at Broad and College streets to the church’s black members, and moved about a block west into this new building. The original church building, which was renamed First African Baptist Church and continued to serve its free and enslaved black congregation, was replaced by a red-brick and gray-roofed structure in 1876. Prominent members of First African Baptist Church have included blacksmith Gilbert Hunt, Henry “Box” Brown, Maggie L. Walker and former Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder. Today, the congregations of First Baptist Church and First African Baptist Church have relocated to other parts of the city, and their former church buildings are owned by VCU.
