The Villagers, an organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of historic sites in Miami-Dade County, recently awarded a $2,500 grant to further the preservation work at the 48-year-old Christ the King Lutheran Church in Pinecrest.
Preservation funds supported restoring two sets of ornamental copper-clad doors that serve as main entries to the sanctuary of the church. The church is located on land deeded by Congress in 1838 to promote the “… cultivation of tropical plants in the US.” As a consistent guardian of the original intent, they maintain waterside grounds with more than 50 types of tropical plants. Christ the King is well-known locally for their expansive music program and outdoor public concerts held on the historic property.
The Villagers have awarded more than 230 grants to more than 80 local endangered sites and organizations. For more details about how to apply for grants, projects funded, membership, and the full scope of The Villagers’ legacy, visit www.thevillagersinc.org.
