The Alabama Historical Commission has awarded Birmingham’s Old Sardis Baptist Church a $192,000 grant to aid in preserving a site where one of the most important moments in the city’s civil right story took place.

Located in the city’s historic Enon Ridge neighborhood, Old Sardis Baptist was organized in 1884 under the name of “Sardis Baptist Church.” Its building, located at 1240 Fourth Street North, was built between 1892 and 1908.

The historical commission grant will help support enhancements to the church building, “bringing tangible, restorative impact to the community and preserving Alabama’s history,” church officials said in a news release.
