Judy Anderson will lead us on a walking tour looking at

  • how Marblehead grew after 1714 when St. Michael’s was built with its 50-foot steeple
  • how houses changed after the American Revolution (1775-1781/83) & the War of 1812
  • how St. Michael’s changed in 1833 to a Gothic Revival style

Your donation of $10 per person will go toward the construction of St. Michael’s steeple which was set in place on Thursday, August 28th.

Steeple Raising Thurs Aug 28 at 12:15 pm

Join us on Thursday, August 28th at 12:15 pm as St. Michael’s new steeple is lifted onto the bell tower. Cake will be served on the lawn afterwards as the spire is being secured. The weathervane will then be placed on top later in the afternoon.

Work on repairs to the bell tower is proceeding on schedule and structural reinforcement put in place. See photos at our Flickr site. Fencing for the roof has already arrived and the spire itself will arrive in 3 parts on Wednesday, August 27.

On Thursday morning, August 28th, Summer Street will be blocked at the church while the 3 parts are unloaded. Then the base will be assembled, raised and secured. After brief speeches at about 12:15 pm, the top part of the spire will be raised about 12:30 pm. All are invited for celebratory cake on the lawn at about 1:00 pm. Once the spire is secured, the weathervane will be attached, in the mid-afternoon.
