Fort Herkimer Church. Fort Herkimer,N.Y.


A project is currently underway to restore the main pulpit and canopy to its original painting with all of its original bright and vivid colors. The first step is to remove the white paint that was likely applied during the turn of the century to cover the badly deteriorating original paint. Next, restoration specialists are painstakingly matching colors to what originally existed and reapplying the paint. The church is currently applying for grants to assist with the painting restoration.
