North Pitcher Church hosts first event in decades; renovations nearly finished

PITCHER – The North Pitcher Community Heritage Society, Inc. celebrated its first event at the newly renovated North Pitcher Church, located on State Highway 26.

On Sunday, Mrs. Winnie Wentworth – joined by her family, who have contributed to the renovations – celebrated her 90th birthday at the church.

“It went very well ... it was wonderful to see life breathed into the place,” said Dave Loomis, a member of the North Pitcher Community Heritage Society.

The building was first constructed in 1835 and later rebuilt in 1895 following a fire. As a child, Loomis said he grew up attending the church when it still functioned as the hub for an Episcopal congregation, although the church has not actually functioned in a religious capacity since the 1970s.
