What happened to the Peoples Temple church buildings in the United States?

  • The church at Peoples Temple’s last address in Indianapolis – 1502 N. New Jersey Street – is now the home of the mostly-black congregation of the Restoration Baptist Church. A color photo of the building appears partway down this page of the Indianapolis Star newspaper.
  • The church which Peoples Temple built on East Road in Redwood Valley, California is now the Assembly of God Redwood Valley.
  • The Temple’s church at 1366 S. Alvarado Street in Los Angeles is now the Iglesia Adventista Central, a Spanish Seventh-Day Adventist Church. Pictures of the building appear here and here on this site. A two-minute clip from a 1972 documentary includes several shots of the building’s exterior, as well as glimpses of the interior during a Temple service. (A Primary Source page on the acquisition of this building is also here.)
