Kingdom Hall Nears Completion
Wednesday, March 9, 2011 • Posted March 8, 2011

What’s that building project south of Blanco? The local congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses, alongside volunteers from all over South Central Texas, are working hard on the new Kingdom Hall. The project is located at the entrance to Landon’s Crossing, on Logan’s Way, south of Blanco on U.S. 281.

The project broke ground on Monday, January 17, said Timothy Covert, and the bulk of the construction will be completed by this Sunday, March 13.

Up to 450 people were working at the site this past weekend.

It was nice to see all the support, Covert said, from all kinds of professions and trades, lending experience they have from their work areas.

The property was acquired at the end of August 2007. The congregation has been going through the design and engineering process, as well as getting paperwork processed. They recently received approval to begin construction.

The hall will be the new meeting place for the two congregations who have been in the area for many years. The current meeting location is half a mile south and the members have outgrown the building and property. The Spanish congregation is 45 members, and the English congregation is 110 members. Both of the congregations are growing steadily, Covert reported.
