Plans to convert Hunterdon Co. church to music hall back to drawing board

Music hall plan on hold


Call it the day the music died in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.

An application to convert Lambertville's former Baptist church into a music hall has been withdrawn from the city board of adjustment.

The plan would have converted the church into a 500-seat music hall and 130-seat restaurant.


The plan ran into heavy opposition from residents, business owners and officials.

They say there is not enough parking to accommodate a project of this size.

Representatives of the music hall say they are heading back to the drawing board.
