Wayback Wednesday: 2001 - This Was a Church...
 

..and this was its steeple.

 

 
 Don Harvey and Tony Harvey ready the steeple for removal. 

When we remodeled the former Calvary Baptist Church in 2000-2001 to become our Montessori school, we had to replace a few fixtures. The steeple was detached from the roof and lowered by crane to the parking lot below.

  

 

    What do you do with a second-hand steeple? We gave it to a church down the road. 


     The demolition crew also removed the fiberglas baptistry by cutting it into pieces. All of the beautiful wood pews were sold. You can see one being used today in the school office. The colored windows were eventually replaced with clear glass. 


     This is what Building B looks like today. 

Have a great Wednesday!
