St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church

Originally constructed in 1910 as Locust Baptist Church, this historic church is completely transformed by Choate Interior Construction, giving members a divinely beautiful new place of worship.

This comprehensive renovation of the north wing and sanctuary areas includes the removal of the balconies and the total replacement of all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.  A new roof system, structural reinforcement throughout, and a new fire sprinkler system bring the building to modern times.

Rich woods, including the rejuvenation of the existing original wood floors in the sanctuary, clean white walls and ceilings, and thoughtful details throughout provide dramatic aesthetic enhancements inside. Additionally, the replacement of all window units, a custom ornamental railing system, and cast concrete pavers revive the exterior appearance.

After walking through the grand cathedral-like doors, it is clear to see why the congregation is in love with their new space.  As member Lynn Strickland explains,

“On behalf of my family, the vestry and the church, I cannot thank you enough for the efforts from you, your company, and your workers to have us worshipping in our new church on schedule. I’m sure that we will never know the full extent of the hard work and dedication that it took, but we are all grateful.

I will smile to myself every time I see one of your black and gold signs around town…!

And above all, it’s just beautiful!  Thank you.”
