• Repair work continues on downtown Atlanta church

    Updated:

    ATLANTA - Crews are expected to resume their repair work on a historic church in downtown Atlanta Thursday.

     

    On Wednesday they put a protective wrap on the tower of the church on Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, which is more than 100 years old.

    A bus and truck crashed into it last year damaging its structural integrity.  

    Channel 2 Action News talked to an Atlanta preservationist about why the church is so important.

    "The first evening service in 1958 was led by Martin Luther King Senior,” said Paul Hammock.

    A representative for the owner of the building told Channel 2 he is trying to save it.
