The Red Brick Church was designed by African-American Richard Allen. The building was erected in 1875. Richard Allen was also a member of the Texas Legislature. This building was the first brick structure owned by African-Americans in Houston, Texas.
The second story was added in 1890. The Gothic features, with pointed arch windows and doors, have been nationally acclaimed. The original handmade pews are still used in the sanctuary.
