Check This Out: Three Options For Downtown Steeple Project

The Unitarian Universalist Church in downtown Wakefield is looking at ways to restore its longtime steeple and to address some other structural issues.

As noted in this article early in the week, members of the Unitarian Universalist Church downtown are in the middle of a capital campaign aimed at possibly restoring a steeple to the nearly 200-year old structure. The project has significance to far more than just the 64-member congregation because regardless of whether they go for a 40-foot spire or a leveled off building, it's going to affect how the town's skyline looks for many years to come.

With that, thanks to project architect Patrick Guthrie of Menders, Torrey & Spencer, Inc. in Boston for sending in some PDF images of the three proposed solutions for the church building, complete with the expected price of each option.

The price varies considerably between the three options and if the church is going to restore its steeple, it will need to do so with support from town businesses, financial institutions, and others.

Do you have any thoughts on any of these three designs? Leave a comment in the box below!
