Businessman has divine plans for old Belk building

August 4, 2004

Albany - An Albany businessman wants to turn the old Belk store downtown into a prayer museum. Peter Studl bought the 51,000 square foot building a few months ago and hopes to open a National Prayer Museum.

"Prayer has been represented in battle conditions, very sad and uplifting stories. There's been group prayer and miracles attributed to prayer. There's even a prayer movement going on in Albany right now," said Studl.

He says the museum will cost about $1.4 million. He's hopes to get the project on the list for the next Special Purpose Local Option Sales tax or SPLOST.

Studl has bought at least seven properties in downtown Albany in the last year. He plans to open Fire Truck Pizza on Front Street.
