The Belvedere Christian Church in Hampton Gardens is still on the market after a possible buyer, First Mt. Olive Freewill Baptist Church decided the location was not the right one for their 2,500 member church.
The Hampton Gardens community became very upset upon learning that the potential buyer had a congregation so large. Belvedere Christian Church was built to accommodate 250 members.
The Pastor of the potential buyer church did not want to enter the community in a manner that would hurt either side.
The Hampton Gardens Community Association, according to a press release, felt that the extra large church would put too much extra stress on the streets, and effect the aging water systems, as well as the septic systems in the neighborhood. They state:
The neighborhood, a small Towson community adjacent to the protected, critical forest preservation areas of Loch Raven Reservoir and Cromwell Valley Park, is located just north of beltway, and is made up of 150 homes with only one road in and out.
Belvedere Christian Church is on the market for $6.9 Million as is located at 1301 Cheverly Road, Towson, MD 21286.
