Church Closes On Purchase Of Former Hunt Club

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -The Pine Belt church with a plan to purchase and transform an old nightclub into a place of worship, one step closer to achieving the goal.

First Hattiesburg Baptist made the announcement about purchasing the former Remington's Hunt Club several weeks ago.

The church has now closed with the bank on the building.

The club was shutdown in 2011 after three USM football players were shot in the parking lot.
