Restoration and Preservation Project 



The Nineteenth Street Baptist Church is a house of worship, an architectural masterpiece, designed by Frank Furness that stands as a tarnished jewel at 19th and Titan Streets.  The problem is that the church has been in a state of slow deterioration for several years.   


As a result of the downward spiral of deterioration the church was eventually deemed unsafe and scheduled for demolition.  However, a $1500 grant used for building materials, three men (a professor, a carpenter and an electrician) and some TLC bought the church some much needed time to save the building.  Last year a portion of the south side of the roof was replaced therefore providing the church with an envelope that seals the church in an attempt to keep it relatively dry.
