  Union United Methodist Church

Union United Methodist Church, a Gothic Revival style edifice built between 1872-1875 by Alexander R. Estey, is a prominent landmark in Boston's historic South End neighborhood. In 1995, McGinley Kalsow & Associates was retained to survey the building and prepare an Existing Conditions Report. The firm assisted the church in securing several grants from Historic Boston, Inc., the Massachusetts Historical Commission and the Henderson Fund to complete the work in a phased approach. The first phase undertook a major restoration and stabilization of the 170-foot stone steeple, which had been in very poor condition. Four subsequent phases of restoration provided an accessible front entrance to the church, undertook major stained glass window and wood restoration, belfry and major roof repairs, as well as masonry cleaning and restoration.
