Westmoreland Club Buys Old Church in Wilkes-Barre
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- The Westmoreland Club just purchased the former First Baptist Church on River Street in Wilkes-Barre. "It's adjacent to the club and has a front on the River Commons so it makes it a really beautiful spot for events," Westmoreland Club General Manager Robert Williams said. The church was built in the early 1920s. Members stopped using it a few months ago. The Westmoreland Club wants to use the sanctuary for parties and other events.
