Saint James African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church is a Gothic Revival brick church located in the historic Method neighborhood on the western outskirts of Raleigh.The church is historically significant as an important example of the spirit of community-building and individual and collective improvement supported by active Method residents and entrepreneurs and as the only church that still occupies its early-twentieth-century structure.
The church has architectural significance as a well-preserved example of a stylish church anchoring an African American community in Raleigh. Built of solid red brick masonry, it has an irregular form, a front-gable roof, and a tall tower and steeple on the northeast corner. The original 1923 building is well-preserved and retains much is its original features on the exterior, including its pointed-arch, stained glass windows, doorways, and brick-framed sign.
