Owner description: Four young girls were killed when a Ku Klux Klan bomb exploded in this church in 1963. The girls are remembered with a shrine in the crypt where they died, and a vibrant stained glass window donated in sympathy by the people of Wales adorns the historic church.

“good and bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2002

unfortunately we arrived at the church late on sunday pm..the good news is that we met a very gracious member of the church who took her time to discuss the history of the church with us and gave us insights on the past and present in re to the 4 young girls who were murdered there..she also told us about some of the leaders at that time..we were enlightened by our brief visit but were terribly disappointed by the condition of ingram park near the church..the park was very dirty that day..kings statue was covered by pigeon feces and drunks were loitering and aprroaching us frequently..th church visit was vry powerful..jerry
