Historic church in Uptown demolished for Trader Joe’s complex
It was later a Chip's Old Fashioned Hamburgers.
Goodbye, little church in the city.
According to some historians, the church at 4501 Cole Avenue in Uptown was more than 100 years old. The structure, which was at one time the Fairland Methodist Episcopal Church, was most recently a Chip's Old Fashioned Hamburgers. The sanctuary dates back to 1902 and was razed yesterday to make room for the new Lincoln Knox development that will include new retail and a Trader Joe’s, as well as 165 luxury mid-rise apartments. David O’Dell managed to capture the video of the demolition, which is bittersweet for the community.
