The fate of a local historic building lies with a local crowdfunding campaign.
The 102-year-old St. John United Church of Christ in Cumberland will be torn down as early as June 1 if $75,000 (£58,567.50) isn’t raised by May 4, Cumberland town officials announced Monday.
The historic building, located at the intersection of German Church Road and Washington Street, has been the center of controversy for years as church leaders try to sell the deteriorating structure they say the congregation can’t afford while town officials fight to protect the historic structure they believe still has purpose.
As church leaders look toward demolition day — the congregation moved out of the building in October 2015 — town officials are scrambling to raise funds and looking to the public for help.
