Abyssinian Meeting House

Founded in 1828 by six black men, the Abyssinian Meeting House was the historical, religious, educational and cultural center of Portland’s 19th century African American population. It is the third oldest standing African American meeting house in The United States. The Abyssinian Meeting House was closely associated with the Underground Railroad, with Portland being one of the northernmost hubs and last stop before legal freedom outside the country.
