Saving the bell

Wednesday evening workers from Superior Crane Company were able to remove the steeple from the old Pee Dee Missionary Baptist Church on Highway 38.  The building, one of the oldest churches in the county, has fallen into disrepair and recently the roof collapsed.  Fearful that tropical force winds might finish the structure off, the Marlboro County Historic Preservation Commission with the assistance of County Administrator Ron Munnerlyn,  Director of Museums and Cultural Affairs Lynn McQueen and the officers of the church moved to have the steeple and the bell preserved.  Using a crane and giant forklift, the Superior workers were able to lift the entire steeple from the building.
