The Bradfordsville Christian Church and the St. Joseph Church have been added to the National Register of History Places.

The Bradfordsville church, which is now the Bradfordsville Performing Arts Center, is located at 101 E. Main Street in Bradfordsville. St. Joseph is located at 3300 St. Joe Road in Raywick.

Marion County Judge/Executive John G. Mattingly announced that the properties had been added to the registry during the Feb. 3 meeting of the Marion County Fiscal Court. The letters, dated Jan. 25, from the Kentucky Heritage Council said the sites had been added to the registry Oct. 25 of last year.

As officially designated historic sites, they are protected against adverse action by federal agencies and they are eligible for federal tax benefits.
