Tower Restoration Project Open House

Completed in 1872, First Baptist Church represents architect H.H. Richardson’s first consistent use of the Romanesque style.

First Baptist has assembled a team and raised funds to undertake a first phase of preservation work on its 176-foot tall tower (restoring the roof and making related masonry repairs) as well as completing critical repairs to the sanctuary roof.

Archival material about the history and architecture of the church will be on display and the sanctuary will be open for informal tours. At 1:30 p.m., project team members will make a brief presentation about the restoration work planned to begin this summer.
