A 2006 fire destroyed the landmark Pilgrim Baptist Church in Bronzeville. That year, Gov. Blagojevich pledged $1,000,000 of state funds to aid in the rebuilding. The recipient of that money, however, wound up being the Loop Lab School on Michigan Ave. Our Auditor General may investigate the matter.
