First Presbyterian Church, Alton, Illinois

Built around 1850, the First Presbyterian Church in Alton, Illinois suffered a fire that badly damaged the original hand carved cross as well as other parts of the church. Luckily, the church still had the original drawings we could use to recreate the wood carved shades for the organ case and to build the huge cross, carved in oak, which is now suspended from the ceiling.

 "You are in a class by yourself. I am certain that we could not have stayed within the borders of the United States and found another firm able to produce such exquisite carving."
