Historic Building Gets Plaque Honoring Its History
10/12/2013 (Updated 11:07:53 PM)
One of the oldest buildings in the area received a historic marker, Saturday. The First Congregational Society Church building on River Street in Lisle was built in 1824.
It is the oldest religious building in Broome County. The church closed in 1957 but is currently being used as an art studio. Community members say its an honor for the building to now have the plaque.
"Up until now people would drive by and they would notice a beautiful building architecturally but they didn't know why it was important," Ronald Borgna, Plaque Sponsor said.
After being denied funds from the sate to purchase the historic marker, sponsors and community members came together to raise the money.
