Learn more about the history of downtown Wilmington’s churches–from their architecture to the people who worship within them–at a presentation Tuesday night at Bellamy Mansion.
The event, set for 6:30 p.m., will feature Edward Turberg, an architectural historian, researcher, National Register consultant, restoration specialist, tour leader and lecturer. He is the historian at St. James Episcopal Church and has worked on innumerable tax credit projects, research assignments and the creation of hundreds of historic plaques.
Turberg will discuss the eight religious buildings visible from the belvedere of the Bellamy: Temple of Israel, Central Baptist, St. Stephen’s AME, Basilica Shrine of St. Mary, St. Paul’s Lutheran, First Church of Christ Scientist, St. Mark’s Episcopal and St. James Episcopal.
The presentation is presented free as part of National Historic Preservation Month.
