Somerset Church to Become a Museum

SOMERSET, NY – The Somerset Union Methodist Episcopal Church at 8501 Lake Road, Barker, New York has recently been sold to a new owner.  This 6525 sq ft church fell into neglect and disrepair following its closure in 1969.  The roof leaks, the interior walls have significant water damage, the entry floors are rotted away, the electrical is from 1920 and there is no insulation.  The stained glass windows are in need of repair and protection.  There is no heat or air conditioning.  But the structure has great bones and only needs a little tender loving care to once again become a magnificent building.  The choice of converting the structure to a museum is important to the community because it is in an area where alternative uses for such a large structures are hard to find and the church is integrated within the historical identity of this rural community.  The property deed specifically states that the building can never be sold to another religious
