Troy Union Church (1840) was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on November 17, 2011.
This will help raise money through the Maine Steeples Fund restoration grant. Being listed on the National Register is a requirement before applying for the restoration grant. The maximum grant is $40,000 and 50% of the restoration project.
The cost of the first two projects is almost $120,000, so our match would be $80,000, and $40,000 from the grant. So, a major fund raising effort is being planned. We need to raise about $65,000 more to meet the match, before applying for the Restoration Grant. The truss repair/replacement and the belfry and roof repair are where we will begin restoring this beautiful 173-year-old historic church. Here is a slideshow of the first stage of the process: shoring up the steeple.
