Pikeville AME Zion Church

The Pikeville African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church is the oldest African-American church still operating in Bledsoe County. The main part of the building dates back to 1870 when it served as the Freedman's Bureau school. The AME Zion dates back to 1888 when it was identified as a meeting house in a deed. It served as a school until the 1920's. Today it is on the National Register of Historic Places.
