Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Tyree AME Church was founded in 1913 by former members of Mt. Pisgah AME Church who met with Reverend B. Lyons in the home of Robert Lightfoot to organize a new church.  The church was named in honor of Bishop Tyree.

The members purchased a church located at 3832 Haverford Avenue.  In 1941 the congregation moved to a condemned church located at 38th Hamilton Streets.  Restrictions were lifted and renovations of the physical structure ensued.
