Well un­der­way

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

The for­mer Hey­field United Me­mo­rial Church in Heart’s Con­tent is get­ting a sub­stan­tial facelift. The ex­te­rior of the 137-year-old build­ing is al­ready be­ing ren­o­vated, and some work is also hap­pen­ing in­side. The church closed in 2009, but is lo­cated in the his­toric dis­trict of Heart’s Con­tent. Some $350,000 is be­ing in­vested to up­date the struc­ture, although it will still keep its orig­i­nal look and her­itage ap­peal. Those on site were work­ing hard last Wed­nes­day when The Com­pass popped by for a photo. It ap­pears the pro­ject is nowhere near com­ple­tion, but one of the work­ers said it will be all worth it when it’s fin­ished.
