Historic St. Matthew's Episcopal Church to celebrate formal reopening

From Louisiana-

A newly built historic church in downtown Houma will celebrate its formal reopening to the public in mid-December.

St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, 243 Barrow St., was built in the mid-1850s as a place of worship for local Christians and as a community-gathering point.

The church was added to the National Register of Historic Sites in 1989. However, it burned down in an electrical fire on Nov. 11, 2010, leaving only a shell of the original structure.
