We close out the week with a church, located in McAdoo Heights. Palm Street Christian Church was first organized in 1905. Since Moses Cone built Proximity Cotton Mills in Greensboro in 1895*, Palm Street would have served residents of the surrounding mill community. The original building is no longer there and the current, red-brick structure was built in 1950. Palm Street doesn't appear to have a website or Facebook page so church history is not readily available.
If you stand in the church parking lot across the street, you can look to the east and get a great view of Revolution Mills. Three years ago we took this photo from Palm Street's parking lot. In this photo, we are actually at Revolution Mills, and, if you stood at the top of the red water tower, you could see Palm Street. Many of these neighborhood churches struggle for membership. We hope Palm Street will be around for years to come and that someone will make its history readily available digitally. For sure the church has provenance.
