Convert this beautiful Chicago church in your home:

Northside’s Oldest Black Church is Moving

When you drive through the Lincoln Park community past the zoo on Clark St., an older church building stands out among the modern high rises. The historic Hermon Baptist Church located at 1754 N. Clark St. is the oldest African American Church on the North Side. In 1887, the church started with 13 members who worked for some of the city’s wealthier families; these members would walk from the Gold Coast to the South Side to worship. At the time, Greater Bethesda and Olivet Baptist Churches were located in the Black Belt (Bronzeville). Needing a place of worship, they landed at a few locations on the North Side before ending up at the Lincoln Park Location. Pastor Keith L. Edwards will have the last service at the church on Sunday March 4th.

Excerpt from: 

With over 140 years of history and memories inside, turn this exquisite church into the home of your dreams. If you are a preservationist reuse the existing building to create your home that preserves and honors the history within.

Alternatively, get creative by tearing down the walls and create the home of your imagination. Customize it to your wildest dreams, create a luxury home and express your full creative vision.

When you buy this beautiful historical church, the choice is yours. This is a unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the home of your dreams!
