Off to church

I've seen the ruins of this old church in central Birmingham, AL and finally got time to explore it a bit. The church was orginally a Greek Orthodox parish and as the congregation moved on, it found a second life as an African-American church. The first time I saw it, it was burned out and I knew I had to get photos. It's boarded up and shows signs of renovation.



















The roof and interior bracings look very new, but there's no construction on-going.






New windows were in several frames

Strange they would put that much work in the interior & windows but ignore the gaping holes in the roof...

Though it's not very visible, there's a steel interior roof that covers most of the interior. I tend to think it's a temporary arrangement to safeguard the unburned areas in the front 3/4 of the building.

Wow, they have a lot of work ahead of them. But I'm always happy to see an old building refurbished, rather than torn down!
