"I've always been all over the lot in my writing. Except for poetry -- even though they say all the old-time sportswriters use plenty of it. Maybe it's just part of what we do."

Wellsville Tabernacle in need of renovations

By Riki Richards

April 27, 2007 | WELLSVILLE -- Nearly 100 years after its completion, the Wellsville Tabernacle needs minor renovations.

The Tabernacle experienced some water damage this year so a place on the north roof will have to be repaired, said Clark Maughan, member of the Wellsville Historical Society.

“There are a lot of things that need to be done, we’ve just got to find some money to do it,” said Maughan.

There is also a possibility of putting in central air so work crews can take out the old boiler and pipes, said Maughan. He said the electrical system in the building is also in need of an upgrade so that one day the building might support an elevator.

The most recent renovations have been in the past 15 years. The small towers that grace the top of the Tabernacle were blown down by strong winds in July 1995 and were put back up in June of 1996 said Wilma Hall, author of the book “Windows of Wellsville.” She said that the building was painted on the inside in 1997 and on the outside in 1999 and a new roof was put on but she was unable to find a date for that event.

“We really love our Tabernacle and it’s something we want to preserve and keep,” said Hall.
