Since the late 19th century, Fayette Street has
been a gateway to the business, social, and
Cultural life of African Americans here. Institutions such as Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church (founded
in 1870), St. Mary's Hospital (1926-1952), Piedmont
Christian Institute (1900-1934), and Imperial
Savings and Loan (founded in 1929) were pillars
of this community. A part of the street Known
as Baldwin's Block (1920s-1960s) represented the
entrepreneurial spirit of the people. Dr. Dana O.
Baldwin and his brothers founded the June
German Ball, which was held at a number of venues
here. This annual musical and dance festival
hosted world-renowned African American musicians
that played to regional audiences.
