A Downtown Flushing church celebrated its 151st anniversary Nov. 14.
Ebenezer Baptist Church has stood at 36-12 Prince St. since it was founded in 1870. In that century and a half, the church and its congregants have become a vital aspect of the Downtown Flushing community. The southwest corner of Prince Street and Northern Boulevard was even co-named “Dr. T. P. Mitchell Way” by the city in 2013 to honor the late and longtime Ebenezer Baptist Church pastor.
