GRAFTON'S BRICK MEETING HOUSE
More than a decade ago, following the purchase of the Brick Meeting House by the Grafton Historical Society the essential work of stabilizing and preserving the structure began. The success of this challenging work depended wholly on the many townspeople who contributed their time , knowledge, skills, and dollars. This was expertly accomplished, and the building was guaranteed a new lease on life.
After several years of inactivity, a new committee has been formed. Its purpose is to preserve the work that has already been done and to complete restoring the interior of the building to include painting the walls and ceiling, making the bell functional, restoring the organ and inproving the lighting.
A new year has arrived, and with it the exciting prospect of a huge step forward in the restoration.
The staging for the ceiling work has been installed, new drywall has been installed and the ceiling painting will begin. The pattern to be used on the ceiling is one with the most historic authenticity and the one agreed upon by the committee that oversaw the first phase of the restoration. The colors to be chosen are now being considered in consultaton with Mr. Martin Zeiser, Painted Finishes, LLC
