A longtime custom homebuilder in Wilmington recently turned an historical church property into its headquarters.
PBC Design + Build used the former fellowship hall of Pearsall Memorial Presbyterian Church at 3902 Market St., designed by architect Leslie Boney Jr. in the 1960s, into a functional beauty.
Pictured is the hall’s original stage, which over the decades hosted everything from Christmas plays to choir practice, magic shows to Cub Scout award ceremonies, said David Spetrino, president of PBC. These days, the stage serves as PBC’s design studio.
In the foreground is a reclaimed pew from the church next door. Spetrino said that while the glass panels are new, the hardwood floors of the stage, the steel beam superstructure and the pine ceiling are original to the building.
