Church latern reconstruction almost complete

June 6, 2013


Second year preservation carpentry students spent more than 8,000 hours over the past five months restoring the lantern of the First Parish Church in Dorchester. One sunny day in May, a crane was on site to assist in reconstructing the two sections of the lantern and the mast. In July, the lantern will be raised to its position on the steeple.
