Buildings such as 701 Macon Ave. were conceived and built during our country’s zenith of caring and craftsmanship. They deserve our care, respect, and support as their equivalent will never again be duplicated. Our children and theirs need this perspective on who we are, have been, and the level of character that provided the foundation and realization of their dreams to serve God and country.

Sculpture Garden in Macon Plaza. This was my son’s Eagle Scout Project which took 14 months and a community of volunteer donors and workers.

Our mission as HCC board members is to care for and responsibly preserve and repurpose historical church buildings. This is currently, and will continue to be, a team effort based on community volunteers and historical grants. Our best years are yet to come!
