Bell Tower Update

In the Spring of 2019, at the Building and Grounds Committee request, Building Envelope Specialists (BES) assessed the condition of the Church Building concluding:

  • The Bell Tower had significantly deteriorated, posing risk of failure, safety and/or property damage
  • The Slate Roof had outlived its useful life
  • Provided other recommendations considered less urgent

Additional information and history:

In March, Edmund Hartt, Jr. Warden, visited the Library at the University of Maine in Orono to view their collection of Leander Higgins pagers – the architect of our current Church, Parish Hall and Bell Tower.  Click here for a summary of his research.

A meeting was held on February 27, 2022, to further discuss and answer questions.  You can view the meeting on our YouTube page by clicking here.
