Tremont church demolition underway

Demolition got underway Monday for a historic downtown Macon church that will make way for a Dunkin' Donuts.

Macon preservationists argued that the century-old Tremont Temple Baptist Church on Forsyth Street should be saved, due to its central role in the city's civil-rights movement.

But the county's planning and zoning board last month voted to allow the demolition.

The building's owners received a building permit for the demolition on March 6.
