New South Entrance doors

Yesterday, Moss Glass from Anderson, Indiana, installed new doors at the south (parking lot) entrance. The new doors replaced the original 1909 doors which had long withstood the ravages of time, but as all of us who had passed through them lately were aware, their time for replacement had come.

The new doors are designed to be handicap-accessible. The larger door on the right will have an automatic opener (to be installed by early next week). The left-hand door will normally be locked, but can be opened to allow larger items to be brought into the building.

Moss also installed an inner door in the vestibule where an older, wooden door was removed many years ago. Restoring a door to this position will help keep cold air out of the building in the winter, and help reduce our heating bills.

These doors are similar in construction to the proposed replacement windows for which the Board is trying to find financing.
