New Hope AME Church's 150th Anniversary

The City of Atlanta is filled with rich history and historic monuments, but there's one hidden gem that many Atlantans aren't aware of.

New Hope AME Church will celebrate its 150th anniversary Sunday.

The church is located in Buckhead, less than one mile from the Governor's mansion. Founded in 1869 as New Hope Camp Ground, the church began as camp ground that became a meeting place for black servants who lived on the property of wealthy landowners. Rev. David F. Richards is currently senior pastor.
