  • Jeff Lamb on the AME Church (pictured):

    “2321 Thalia. Corner S. Liberty. Union Bethel A.M. Church. Emile Weil, architect, 1910. Repaired after a fire, 1966, Sieforth and Gibert, architects. A nicely proportioned Gothic church evocative of mid-nineteenth century work. Although somewhat altered, it retains much original exterior fabric and is an important visual landmark in its neighborhood, contrasting with the adjacent housing project. If the Central City Historic District now being reviewed does not include this building, we recommend it for the National Register listing.”

    Your information is incorrect. Look at the website under the State of Louisiana’s Historic
    Preservation department in the Lieutenant Governor’s Office. You will find that the Four Freedoms Building is part of the National Historic Site designation. No one was there to oppose the proposed action because the church administration did not notify the members.
