Photographer's Note

This Gothic Revival church is a one-story brick block building stuccoed and on the gabled end is at the base of the projecting belfry and tower. The square tower is topped by an octagonal spire whose base flanked by eight pinnacles. The windows between the buttresses have lancet arches with hood moulds.

The interior features a U-shaped gallery supported by slender iron columns, a flat ceiling with crossribs, and the original organ. Construction of the Freemason Street Baptist Church began in 1848 and the church was dedicated in 1850.

From 1850-1879 the church was tallest building in Norfolk. However, in 1879, a severe storm toppled the church steeple. A new steeple was built in 1897 in a somewhat smaller scale than the original.
