Church ISO new home

Preservation Piedmont recently documented the structure, and has been in contact with leaders of the congregation and Charlottesville-Albemarle Regional Airport to try to locate a new owner who will assume the responsibility and expense of removing it from the site. As the parishioners of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church have recently moved to their new facility, the new owner of the historic church would be free to repurpose the historic structure.

The historic Pleasant Grove Baptist Church is a fine example of a rural church type that is fast disappearing from the county’s landscape; the last chance to preserve the structure is running out. If you are interested in helping to save this structure, please contact Preservation Piedmont at or contact Bill Pahuta at CHO directly at 434-973-8342 x103.–Preservation Piedmont

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.
