The history of Westmoreland Church is a story of action inspired by faith.

The church began in 1886 as Mount Pleasant Congregational Church on Newton Street in Washington, DC.  At that time, Mount Pleasant was a village with unpaved streets within the District, remote from the city.

The original membership of nineteen grew rapidly reflecting the expansion of the city of Washington and growth of the Congregational denomination in general. A new building was completed on Columbia Road and 14th Street in 1904 with a gymnasium and bowling alleys – a sign of Westmoreland’s progressive ways.
