January 21, 1911: New Church for Blooming Grove

100 Years Ago: From The Rensselaer Eagle [NY 41 Rensselaer 93-32173].
New Church in Place of Burned Structure

Blooming Grove is to have a new Reformed church to replace the old building which was destroyed by fire New Year's eve. The trustees will visit other churches before deciding the type of building needed by the congregation. The insurance on the church was $6,000, about $2,500 more than has been pledged.
The church's web site shows that they have some nice stained glass windows.

There was originally more architectural detail at the roofline (shown circa 1950).
