An outpost of Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam
has plans to build its first mosque in St. Louis.
The group, known as Mosque #28
held a fundraiser last Sunday to raise the monies needed to renovate an
existing building in the Walnut Park neighborhood of north St. Louis.

Currently the mosque is based in a Roberts Brothers property on North Kingshighway. According to an e-mail solicitation, Mosque #28 plans to focus on mentoring and youth programs when the new building is up and running.
