After four years of suspense and committed effort, WHALE and Your Theatre have closed a $150,000 deal on the purchase of the historic but at-risk First Baptist Church on William Street. . .
. . . The deal means a bright future for the church built in 1829, which is on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s National Treasures list.
The sale follows four years of planning, surveys, often stormy and emotional negotiations, grant writing and fundraising.
