Sponsor a Window
The Glenn Springs Preservation Society has been working steadily and making progress with the help of the community and faithful donors. With the foundation problems now corrected, the new metal roof, gutters and down spouts installed, we now turn our attention to the windows and doors. The estimate for vinyl clad windows installed is almost $50,000. They will be wooden on the interior and made of permanently maintenance free material on the exterior. They will be custom made and match the original windows. This is the third and final phase of restoring the exterior of the building. After this phase is complete our task will be the floor and the interior walls.
The windows will be the most expensive phase of the “Old Stone Church Project”. Therefore we are seeking those who will sponsor a window. It can be in memory or in honor of someone, or a family. There are 12 windows in the church. Since the total cost for the window phase is $50,000, we are asking for a donation of $4000 for each window.
As a suggestion, children might join to sponsor a window in memory or honor of their parents. A bronze plaque will be placed near the window to recognize the person or family honored. A donor book or register will list all those who contributed to each window. We have five windows pledged at this time.
If you chose not to sponsor a window but would like to help with his project any donation will be most welcome. It is our goal to complete the window project this year.
Donations are tax deductible as we operate under the Spartanburg County Foundation. Checks may be made out to the foundation and marked to apply to the Old Stone Church Project. If you have questions please call David Miller at 864-583-8032 or Linda Powell 864-582-5429.
The restoration project has three purposes.
1. Located on the Glenn Springs Academy property , the restored building will become a place of worship for the young men of the Academy
2. Through the Use Agreement we have with the Academy, the building will be available for the public for community/civic or private events like weddings or receptions
3. Listed on the Historical Register, the preserved building will be part of the history of South Carolina and the Presbyterian Church in America.
