Church Stained Glass Restoration for West Virginia
Though European exploration of West Virginia began in the late 1600’s, it wasn’t until later that development flourished and religious populations began settling in the area. The abundance of coal and other natural resources prompted the construction of railroad lines in the Allegheny Mountains and the rest of the region. By the early 20th century, Protestant groups began sending missionaries to West Virginia, which led to the development of numerous churches throughout the Mountain State. Skilled artisans were hired to create stained glass windows in many of these churches, some of which still exist today and are hundreds of years old.
Unfortunately, many of these rare gems are at risk of being lost forever due to exposure to the elements and the natural process of degradation which ensues as a result. But there is still hope for preserving West Virginia’s historic stained glass. With stained glass restoration, churches can restore and protect their beloved artwork so that it can be enjoyed by future generations.
