Mount Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church was built in 1847-48 as the Glebe Street Presbyterian Church. In 1881 the church was purchased by a group from Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. They organized a new congregation which became Mount Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church. Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church became the first brick church building in Charleston that African Americans owned.
