Save Egg Hill Church

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.
