If you have occasion to drive by the Old West Church it simply gleams with new paint and restored steeple. These are physical manifestations of the generosity of our community and the many volunteers that lend their efforts to maintaining this special place. Leading up to our 200 year celebration in 2023 will be additional efforts inside and outside of the building to continue to maintain its pristine condition. We will keep you apprised!
The bell that rings out across Calais from the steeple of the Old West Church has been fully restored! Special thanks to Cindy and Mack and John Gardner-Morse, Peter Harvey, members of the OWC Building Committee, and Doug Gomez of the University Vermont Physics Department, who machined a special bracket for the restoration.
