Flood doesn't dampen spirits at Trinity Episcopal Church

From New Jersey-

Trinity Episcopal Church’s restoration project wasn't done in vain, even though it might have looked that way after Hurricane Irene swept through and destroyed some of the recently-finished work.

The Siano Brothers Contracting firm of Cranford deconstructed the original church building in 2008 and then by the end of 2010, had rebuilt the structure back to how it looked when it was first built in 1875. The firm was able to salvage some parts of the original structure and restore it, such as the church’s organ.

The organ was dismantled and removed to be refurbished and repaired. Then it was re-installed, taking four weeks, near the end of the reconstruction project in October of 2010.

Trinity Episcopal paid for the restoration project with a capital campaign it started in 2007. The church then sold a lot it owned on Arlington Road for $300,000, using the proceeds for the rebuilding fund.
