Founded in 1875 and named in memory of Paul Quinn, the fourth bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Quinn Chapel is the oldest black congregation in Genesee County. This building, is the congregation's third house of worship. A debate society organized by the young men of the church paid the debt on the first church building, erected in 1877, with admission fees earned from Friday night debates. In 1912 a large brick structure replaced the original frame church. The city of Flint demolished that building in 1955 to make way for the Civic Center.
