This Eckington church has seen better days, but guess what? It’s up for grabs and ready for the next investor or developer to rethink its next life. Some suggestions from Curbed: maybe make a new arts space, a hotel, or luxury condos. If interested, the price totals $1,349,000.

According to the listing, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom property was constructed in 1923 on two lots, spanning 3,200 square feet. There is the possibility to subdivide the property into three lots in order to build five or six residential units. Parking is available in the rear.

When it served as a church, it was called Mt. Olives United Missionary Baptist Church. Approximately two and a half years ago, the church moved to 6559 Annapolis Road in Hyattsville, Maryland, in order to enlarge the ministry.
