First Baptist Church Groundbreaking

In the blaze of a VERY warm July afternoon sun, New Bedford’s historic First Baptist Church enjoyed its ceremonial groundbreaking yesterday. Work on the steeple has been underway for several weeks, and downtown visitors will be able to watch the reconstruction unfold as the summer goes by.

Walk down William Street to see for yourself, or peruse these photos of yesterday’s groundbreaking.

A special thanks to New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell, Reverend Dalton Said from the First Baptist congregation, and Susan Richard, President of Your Theatre, for helping us to officially open this long-anticipated project.
