Methodist Episcopal Church, Buffalo

Methodist Episcopal Church, Buffalo

Situated on Delaware Avenue, Methodist Episcopal Church is a fine example of Greek revival architectural style built of Medina sandstone by architect John H. Selkirk, who has contributed to the establishment of many Buffalo religious landmarks. The construction of the church lasted 5 years and was completed in 1876.

Today, this church is also known as Asbury-Delaware Methodist Church because of the merging of the two churches in 1916. The combined congregation disbanded in 1969, ending the Methodist presence in the city, which had existed here since the foundation of Buffalo. In 2003, this beautiful church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
