     Organized in 1881, this church was founded to serve people living in the West End and Chaneyville communities, later known as the Sixth Ward. The Rev. Louis Brown served as first pastor of the church, which was named in his honor. A small sanctuary built in 1882 was destroyed by fire in 1917. Construction of the present building, originally a one-story frame structure, was begun that year. It was later enlarged to two stories, and in 1944 the exterior was clad in brick. Brown Chapel continues to be an important part of the Sixth Ward.
