Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church is a historic landmark and the birthplace of the A.M.E. denomination. In addition to its sanctuary, the church houses the Richard Allen Museum and Mother Bethel Archives. The Mother Bethel Foundation received a design grant from the Collaborative to create a plan for renovation and expansion. A new three-story addition is proposed in place of the existing Sunday School wing. The addition will expand the world-renowned museum and archive and provide ADA accessibility, community and classroom spaces, and new building systems throughout the facility.
