MT. OLIVET RECEIVES A CROWN - The steeple that was removed from Mt. Olivet Church in downtown Seaford on Tuesday, Nov. 25, was returned to its lofty position atop the church on High Street on Monday morning.
Because of the rotten condition of some of the structure, the steeple had to be removed and reconstructed. Only the original frame was able to be reused. Inside the steeple workers found the names of some earlier citizens or perhaps construction members from the past. The names included WR Price with a date of October 17, 1897. Other names were Charles Parsons, Eddie Delhifer, Willie Blades, KJ Graham and Charlie Graham. Church members had hoped to have the renovated structure back in place in December, but had to make sure the steeple and its resting place were safe and secure before being reinstalled.
