Believe it or not,
About four years ago my old Kingdom Hall was sold to another church -- a French-Creole Baptist church of all things. Our new Kingdon hall was built right next to it. The new Kingdom Hall was built on the majority of what was the parking lot of the old hall. Free/reduced priced land from the city I guess.
I mean it’s one thing if you sell an old building that was a Kingon Hall and then moving half-way across town to never see it again. But RIGHT NEXT DOOR?!? It’s amusing (and kinda sad) seeing they have to occupy this old building which look like it’s crumbling (paint jobs to make it look like new can only do so much). They pretty much have to park behind the buiding in a cleared-out wooded area. And the three hurricanes we had in the past two years didn't help.
The elders even took the out all the old chairs (about 180 or so) and sold them. The French-Creole Baptists were not very happy about that. You can cleary look in and see long, dark wooden pughs (like they use in Catholic Churches) from the outside when you drive by. It has large clear glass doors to look through at just the right angle.
