The Scott Boulevard Baptist Church steeple came down Wednesday, July 8. Developers had been demolishing the rest of the church, but the steeple still stood for a few weeks.
It finally was brought down Wednesday. Decaturish reader Chris Hunt provided a photo and video of the steeple coming down.
He wrote, “She dropped her hat, then knelt and fell. RIP Scott Boulevard Baptist Church.”
The church is being demolished to make way for Decatur Crossing, a new mixed-use development moving in. Construction on a new apartment building, part of Phase I of the development, is expected to start in September.
