Major Walhalla project slated for spring

The replacement of the roof at a fire-damaged Walhalla church will make for a major project this spring in the county seat. The congregation at Walhalla Presbyterian Church has decided it wants to re-build at its long-time location—E. Main and S. Johns Street. An architect and a builder have been hired, and church spokesman Thomas Alexander predicts the roof replacement is the first order of business. “They’re in the process, as I understand it, of building the truss that will be used for the roof,” Alexander told 96.3/WGOG NEWS today. An historic church, Walhalla Presbyterian was built 100 years ago for $9 thousand. But it’s going to take between $1 and $2 million to restore the church from last fall’s fire.
