The Fair Street Christian Church in Springfield, OH has a long history dating back to the mid-1800s. The church was founded by a group of Methodists who sought to establish a place of worship in the growing community of Springfield. Over the years, the church has undergone several renovations and expansions to accommodate its growing congregation. In the early 1900s, the church added a Sunday School building and a new sanctuary. In the 1960s, the church underwent a major renovation, adding a new fellowship hall and other facilities. Today, the Fair Street Christian Church continues to be an important spiritual and community center for residents of Springfield.
For this project, the structural elements of the steeple were stabilized before work began. The original decorative metal work was badly deteriorated. Original pieces were precisely duplicated in new copper. As the metal work was completed, the steeple was slated with new black, green, and red slate. Asphalt shingles were removed from the main church roof, which was slated with the same pattern as the steeple.
