GREAT BARRINGTON— The legacy of the town’s African-American community is one step closer to being preserved and honored.
Construction began at the former Clinton A.M.E. Zion Church site at 9 Elm Court in Great Barrington on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 23. The work began with a kickoff event at the property, featuring several speakers as well as a performance from Pete Wilson, Clinton A.M.E. Zion Church congregant and local musician Graham Dean.
South Hadley-based Larochelle Construction Inc. is undertaking the first phase of restoration work to the site to repair and replace the structure’s roof.
