‘Christ At Gethsemane’ Rescued After

Raging Fire Destroyed Milford Church

Pastor Sylvia Barrett surveys the nearly complete sanctuary – “starkly beautiful,” as Methodism’s founder John Wesley preferred – inside the new Milford Methodist Church this morning as stained-glass restorer Doug Hallberg of Oneonta reinstalls “Christ at Gethsemane,” which was almost destroyed Sunday, March 12, 2017, when the 1929 landmark on Route 28 was destroyed in an arson fire.  Construction began on the new church last September, and it has become a new landmark, much remarked-upon by the thousands of drivers that passed it daily.  Finishing touches are being done on the modern structure, which, pending final code approvals, is due to open soon.  (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
