Church ISO new home
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Bill Pahuta at CHO directly at 434-973-8342 x103.–Preservation Piedmont
Preservation Piedmont recently documented the structure and has been in contact with leaders of the congregation and Charlottesville-Albemarle Regional Airport (whose safety zone expansion necessitates its removal) 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 would be free to repurpose the historic structure.
