Dallas church to buy recording studio building

DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas church has unveiled plans to buy an art deco building where blues great Robert Johnson recorded in 1937. First Presbyterian Church has announced plans to buy what's known as 508 Park Ave.

The Rev. Bruce Buchanan says the plan for the historic building near the church's complex to help the homeless, known as the Stewpot, has been presented to the Dallas Landmark Commission. The panel is responsible for reviewing applications for city landmarks.

Buchanan says the goal is to restore 508 Park's exterior, plus refurbish the inside and create a recording studio. The Dallas Morning News reported yesterday that the property was built in 1929 as a film distribution center.
