| ST. PETER'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH TOWER ASSESSMENT
Committee for the Preservation of Historic St. Peter’s Episcopal Church
The 18th century masonry church tower is capped with a wood-shingled steeple and a gold leaf cross. The interior of the tower is composed of seven levels and houses the organ blower and the bells. There is a built-in ladder on the seventh level that provides access to the portholes inside the shingled steeple.
The brick structure of the tower was showing signs of instability and required remediation efforts that would not alter the historic masonry. The tower required structural tie rods, as well as masonry, wood shingle, and window repairs.
SCOPE OF SERVICE
