Old Village Church News

The judgment is in regarding our boundary issue.  The judge has awarded title of the contested strip of land to our abutter and we are in the process of finalizing the details of the decision.  What does that mean for us?  One of our main goals in initiating this case was to clarify the boundary line.  We have achieved that, though perhaps not in the way we had hoped.  However, we are now free from the uncertainty and endless discussion about who owns the property and we can move on with our work to restore the building and make it a vibrant part of community life.  Additionally, our neighbor is also free to manage her property without the limiting uncertainty of the boundary line and she now has many more options for the future of her lot.  We want to thank everyone who supported us in this effort over the past several years.  It is immensely gratifying to know how important the Old Village Church is to so many community members.

The coming year should be an exciting one as we get to work on projects that have been on hold, such as installing an accessible restroom, that will make this historic building more “usable” for community events. Want to join our planning committee?  Need more information about our work?  Feel free to contact us using the form below.
