Site of the oldest and most prominent African American congregation in Annapolis, MD. In 1803, seven free African Americans bought the land and established the First African Methodist Episcopal Church. It was closed in 1832 in a local reaction to the 1831 Nat Turner Rebellion in Virginia. The congregation joined the segregated First Methodist Episcopal (now Calvary United Methodist) Church. The church started again on this site in 1838 as Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church when the African American congregation left First Methodist. Asbury's founding congregation included several hundred people, many of them slaves. This brick building was built in 1888 and expanded in 1976. The congregation became Asbury United Methodist Church in 1968 when the two church conferences united.

Henry Price, a well-known, free, African American community leader, served as Asbury's pastor from 1838 to 1863. He was also the grandfather of Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, the noted surgeon who performed the world's first successful open-heart surgery in 1893.
