Right before Christmas, Dallas Independent School District board president Adam Medrano told Unfair Park he is "not sure what can be done at this point" to save the Oak Cliff Christian Church, which DISD purchased in the fall to make way for some piece of the new Adamson High School campus. (Tentative plans have the building being razed for athletic fields or tennis courts.) Medrano also said he's "gotten reports that it's in terrible condition," which is why Oak Cliff Conservation League president Michael Amonett, who's trying to save the building, sent us photos last night of the church's interior. Amonett says they were sent to him anonymously, but "they show the current interior of Oak Cliff Christian and demonstrate it isn't in 'terrible condition.'"

There are a handful more after the jump. Take a peek while we assemble a slide show.Here's a slide show of all the pics Amonett sent over.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
