The Morningview Neighborhood
Morningview Baptist Church is located in the historic Morningview neighborhood. Development of the Morningview neighborhood began in the 1930’s on what was then a large cotton farm. It wasn’t until after the Second World War that the neighborhood development really took off. It was during that era that our church was founded in 1949, and it has grown along with the community ever since.
Today the Morningview neighborhood bridges an important generational gap, with approximately 28% of its residents under the age of 25 and 26% over the age of 65.
The neighborhood is located about 2.5 miles east northeast of downtown Montgomery, and is bordered by three major corridors, Federal Drive, Atlanta Highway, and Coliseum Boulevard.
