It was a hot dusty summer, but the hard work paid off in a beautiful, historic sanctuary restoration.
And now, the First Baptist Church Restoration has been chosen by a jury of preservationists from across the state to receive a 2014 Heritage Award for Restoration, by the Mississippi Heritage Trust. Belinda Stewart Architects, PA, submitted the project and their hard work and accomplishment will be honored at the heritage Awards Luncheon set for 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 10 at the J.J. Rogers Building in downtown Tupelo.
The awards luncheon will be held in conjunction with the 2014 Listen Up! Historic Preservation Conference. Tickets for the luncheon can be purchased for $25 online at http://www.listenUPms.com.
