Notes:
In 1873 Mt. Jezreel was born out of Vermont Avenue Baptist Church by a group of people tired of walking across town to church. 1879 Mt. Jezreel relocated to 7th near L Street, S.E. to a site known as the old "Meat House". In 1882 the Church voted to purchase the lot on the southeast corner of E Street at 5th, S.E. and in 1883 the cornerstone was laid at 5th & E Streets, S.E. In 1996, after several further moves, the Church relocated to 420 University Boulevard East, in Silver Spring, Maryland where it remains. Taken from Church's website: www.mtjezreel.com
