The All Souls Chapel receives a Preservation Grant
The Maine Historic Preservation Commission announced that the All Souls Chapel received a $5,000 matching grant for a pre-development report of drawings and architectural plans and specifications for the rehabilitation of the slate roof at the All Souls Chapel in Poland Spring.
The All Souls Chapel Restoration is a multi-year project for the Poland Spring Preservation Society (PSPS) with over $4,000 needed in repairs. The All Souls Chapel opened in 1912 as an interdenominational place of worship for use by Catholics and Protestants. Countless weddings, memorials and events have been held in the Chapel over the last 110 years. This restoration will allow PSPS to continue using the Chapel for educational and community events and as a source of income for the Preservation Society for years to come.
The funds from the Maine Historic Preservation Commission will aid in a report to expand on the Historic Structure Assessment prepared by Artifex in 2019. Included will be updated probable cost information for this initial masonry/roofing rehabilitation work.
Poland Spring Preservation Society is grateful to the Maine Historic Preservation Commission for making this possible. The $5,000 grant requires a 1:1 match to qualify.
