• Restoration in progress at historic Dallas church

    Updated:

    DALLAS, N.C. - Work is underway to preserve a historic church in Dallas.
     
    Roofers were almost finished Monday replacing the roof of First Baptist Church on Rhyne Street.
     
    The church was established in 1886 and rebuilt in 1939.

    The congregation moved 10 years ago into a new sanctuary and the old church began to fall apart.
     
    The members want to turn the old church into a community center.
     
     “This was our community-like place and to see it deteriorate so fast was very discouraging," church member Elouise Falls said. “I'm really excited and I know the congregation is as well.”
     
    The members paid to replace the roof and they are looking for donors and volunteers to complete the work.
