Clock Tower Will Be Demolished Today

FREDONIA – The historic clock tower at Family Church Fredonia will be demolished today. 
Church leaders say they hope to have it completely down by the end of the day.
The clock tower was destroyed by fire in May.

A copper gutter that blew off the Church landing on a nearby transformer caused a fire that destroyed the bell tower last month.
In the last few years, Family Church Fredonia moved into the building, spending $1.4M in renovations.
The inside also suffered heavy damage and will need major renovations.
Village of Fredonia Police Chief Brad Meyers said in a media advisory streets around the tower will be closed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the demolition.
The congregation setup a GoFundMe page in 2017 to help with general restorations.
