Razing homes will make room for church

Razing homes will make room for church

April 12th, 2012 in News

Quinn Chapel AME Church will have a suitable lot to relocate, yet remain in close proximity to Lincoln University.

Highway improvements are coming.

A historic church is moving - again.

And a residential neighborhood stands in the balance.

The Jefferson City Historic Preservation Commission recently approved one application for a block of six homes to be demolished at the corner of Lafayette and Miller streets.

"These are the sacrificial lambs of this neighborhood," said Commissioner Jenny Smith at the city's Historic Preservation Commission meeting this week.
