Worthy of Preservation

We will preserve, conserve and protect the First Baptist Church historic building, objects, landscapes or other artifacts of historical significance.  We will work with our partners in the community to understand and educate everyone about our past.  We will endeavor to spark a continuing conversation that looks at our history in different ways, asking ourselves questions about what is important in our history.  This is an important way for us to transmit our understanding of the past to future generations.  Historic preservation helps us to tell the stories of our past, celebrating events, people, places, and ideas that we are proud of; other times it involves recognizing moments in our history that can be painful or uncomfortable to remember. It is important to understand and share our place in the history of Williamsburg and the nation.
