Where in C’ville. Enter guesses below.
My parents say that this is The First Baptist Church burning down. They were married there June 5, 1967.
Fire at the First Baptist Church. So devastating. That church was beautiful.
Yup, that’s 1st Baptist alright, corner of 2nd and E. Jefferson. I went to kindergarten there. This was just a catastrophic fire – the next morning it looked like it had been bombed.
The building on the right is the current Albemarle-Charlottesville Historical Society.
Another Roseberry photo. First Baptist Church. 1978. We featured several photographs of this church before, during, and after the fire in our recent “Roseberry’s Charlottesville” show.
