| 0 comments

Thanks to the incredible support of our members and friends, FNL is able to preserve two more historic buildings this year. In addition to the 1930 African-American Methodist Church, FNL now owns our long-time museum office, which is a c. 1850 Methodist Church. We will be working with Custom Structures, Inc. to begin restoration work on the 1930 church. Meanwhile, the 1850 church will receive some maintenance and will be the site of a beautiful monument commemorating the history of New London and the contributions of the Teass Family beginning in the 1750s. More on the monument soon, but see the News & Advance for more coverage of the church acquisition. News & Advance
