Restoration Project at Kittery Point

 We recently began restoration of the windows on the First Congregational Church of Kittery Point.  Established in 1714, it is the oldest parish in Maine still in continuous use.  One of the window sashes in this church is the oldest sash that Bagala Window Works has restored  in our 26-year history.

The Portland Observatory built in 1807 is the last remaining maritime signal tower in the United States.  It is listed as a National Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places.  BWW is very happy to be involved in this window reproduction project.
