Workers from Clayton Construction lay out the foundation for new bathrooms and a lobby enclosure at Tryon Presbyterian Church’s sanctuary. Summer has been busy at the church campus, as the team works to complete the new building. The church sanctuary was donated by Frank McGregor in 1958 and designed by local architects Shannon Meriweather and Holland Brady. Its design included nautical references that honored McGregor’s sister, who died at sea en route to France while serving with the American Red Cross during World War I. The new project is intended to preserve much of the original design. Architect of the project is Good City Architects of Greenville, S.C. and their design will simplify the platform to allow greater flexibility, update finishes and lighting and improve access for members and visitors. The church plans to have construction complete in the fall.
