From the Ashes...

All that remains of the Bethel Baptist Church, originally built in 1923, is a hollowed out shell, the victim of a fire in January of 2005. Purchased by the city in 2009, the plans are to eventually preserve the fa├žade and turn the city block into an enclosed green space for public use while keeping the church’s historic presence.
