On a bluff at the edge of Egg Hill stands a beautiful country church built by members of the Evangelical Association. Built in 1860 to replace an earlier church, it has gracefully stood thru 160 years of stormy winds and rains. Built of pine, the 35 by 42 foot building has floor joists of mortised and tenoned joints and is held together with wooden pegs over a stone foundation. At first glance, the church looks as it did for the last 80 years. A closer look shows the deterioration at the base of the church. Following an inspection, it was determined that the building is in good shape. However, the foundation is in very poor condition and will soon affect the entire building. It is now that we need to make some repairs to preserve the old church. This landmark is a very important part of local history. The location of the church will save it from modern-day construction and eradication. It is well worth saving for many generations to come. Your help is needed. We have an estimated amount of $35,000 to redo the foundation. We are applying for grants and plan to solicit the area to support this effort to save the church. Please consider making a donation to this GO FUND ME page. If you like, you may send your check to Egg Hill Conservancy, 107 Brown Road, Rebersburg PA. 16872.
