New Front Doors in Place

We can add one more thing to our gratitude lists this Thanksgiving! Two of the three front (11th Street) doors and frames have been replaced, in spite of the rainy weather.

The original historic doors were wood; these are metal for durability. Their color was chosen to match the patina of the steeple.

The third, center set of doors will be replaced next week, weather permitting. The stairs are slated for concrete repair, too. That work is also weather-dependent, requiring enough warmth for the concrete to cure. We’re hopeful it can be done before winter sets in!
