A different view of steeple restoration at First Presbyterian

For about three weeks, a crew from Steeplejacks of America of Strongsville, Ohio, has been doing extensive restoration work on the steeple at First Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of West Innes and South Fulton streets in Salisbury. Chris Bradshaw, immediate past chairman of the church’s property committee, said First Presbyterian was fortunate to get on Steeplejacks’ schedule this summer. The company previously had been working on a steeple at Central Methodist Church in Asheboro. The steeple work in Salisbury has included replacement of deteriorating wood, scraping, painting and a refurbishing of the clock. Goodman Millwork provided much of the replacement pieces of wood. ‘We’re bringing it back to earlier glory days,’ Bradshaw said.
