Save the Belfry is a community-wide project to restore the First Universalist Church of Norway belfry. The Committee is made up of both church and community members. Committee members are Joan Beal, chair; Sally Bradley, Jan Cardoza, Susan Denison, Ellen Gibson, Erica Jed, Ed Somers, and Rev. Fayre Stephenson. The church building, constructed in 1828, is a marvelous timber frame structure and a testament to Yankee ingenuity and craftsmanship. More than 190 years of wind, water, and weather have caused structural deterioration that must be repaired. The Save the Belfry Committee is committed to preserving this landmark of Norway’s skyline for another 190 years.
