"Quinn Chapel A.M. E., Church is a one-story, rectangular-plan building located in the Carondelet district of South St. Louis at the intersection of Minnesota and Bowen streets. Originally built for use as a public marketplace by the City of Carondelet in the late 1860s, a black congregation purchased it in the early 1880s. The congregation added an entrance tower about 1900, and much interior remodeling has occurred in the recent past." [From the nomination to the National Register of Historic Places as prepared by Ronald W. Johnson, Ph.D., research associate, July, 1974.]
