First Baptist Church dome restoration complete

Congratulations to the First Baptist Church on South Street for completing the restoration of a piece of Pittsfield's skyline: its handsome weathervane-topped dome. The building is listed on the State Register of Historic Places, and received a matching grant from the Massachusetts Preservation Project Fund, through the Massachusetts Historical Commission. It has been illuminated once again for the first time that I can recall in my life growing up in Pittsfield.

The scaffolding going up back in early April 2017.
