Pilgrim Baptist Church information
Gospel music got its start at Pilgrim Baptist Church, originally built as a synagogue by famed architects Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan in 1890. Unfortunately, the opulent structure was burned beyond repair in 2006 when a roof repairman lost control of his blowtorch. Only the exterior walls remain as a brooding reminder of the venue's prominence.
