Antioch Baptist Church at 1327 Fillmore Ave. in Buffalo is a well-preserved Romanesque Revival fortress that rises above the MLK Park neighborhood. It was built in 1906 as St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in a German neighborhood, designed by architect George Setter. It celebrated its last Mass in October 1978, a month before Antioch Baptist Church purchased the building. The congregation has lovingly preserved the church.
