Preservation Personals: Converted Chapel Offers Heavenly Home
Steeple Seeks Owner Looking for Peace and Pleasant Living
Over the years, many people came to me to give thanks. I give thanks to Captain John Carroll, a mill owner who wanted a church nearby for his mill workers. He built me in 1871. People left when the mills closed, but I was born again in 1976 as a modern home. To this day, I am surrounded by nearly two acres of tall trees and lovely gardens. You could take a pleasant stroll outside and stop by at the general store, the post office, or the library if you’d like.
Inside, I have a lovely two-story living room with a Danish Lange wood stove. My sanctuary has been converted into a great room that provides lots of light through my large Romanesque-style windows. You’ll also find three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an eat-in kitchen. This ecclesiastical edifice could be your heaven on earth!
