A photograph of Glendale Baptist Church located at 1020 Glendale Lane in Nashville, Tennessee. This church started as a mission of Belmont Heights Baptist Church in 1948 and was officially chartered as an independent congregation on March 11, 1951. Glendale was supportive of desegregation efforts in the 1960s, and active in provocative issues such as school desegregation and economic injustices. Today the church has embraced gender equality and employs two female co-pastors as head of the church. The foundation of the building is red brick. The exterior walls are red brick. The tar brick roof is gabled and hipped. Windows are a mix of clear glass and colored glass. A large front porch with four columns stretches across the entrance. Forms part of the Historic Nashville, Inc. Sacred Sites Survey Project. 1 photograph : col. ; 4 x 6 in.
