Christ Church Episcopal

Christ Church Episcopal on North Church Street recently hosted a meeting with the Historical Society to talk about the recent restoration project. The project was to improve the looks as well as protect the building for the future. Some items were:

  • Remove stained glass windows and clean them. Those have not all been completed yet
  • New roof that looks exactly like slate but is made of recycled rubber products. This will make the building lighter and better able to withstand possible seismic activity.
  • Restore woodwork and polish instruments such as this organ.
  • Add sprinkler fire suppression system that invisibly blends into the ceiling

The church was started in 1820 and will hold its bicentennial celebration in 2 years in 2020.
