“The National Fund for Sacred Places highlights both the tremendous value and the stewardship needs of historic houses of worship across the United States,” said Paul Edmondson, President and CEO of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “We are honored to support these congregations as they advance important preservation projects at places such as Civil Rights landmark Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta; the 250-year-old Church of St. Francis of Assisi in Puerto Rico; and Arch Street Meeting House in Philadelphia, which blends Georgian architecture with a simple Quaker design.”
