Friendship Baptist Church is more than just a community building. The 19th century edifice also held a fascinating history itself, tied to the foundation of Morehouse College and Spelman College. Learn more about the history below.

Georgia Tech’s Building Memories podcast also featured a story on the church, available here:
This replica of the church was designed to also serve as a birdhouse, as a home for the local Carolina Chickadees whose numbers have decreased in recent years.
The replica contains a special compartment that is their perfect size! Listen to the clip below to hear more about the Chickadee in the Atlanta area.
