Central Presbyterian Church is a landmark heritage building in the heart of Cambridge. Built in the gothic revival style, the building and Main Street bridge is the most photographed site in Cambridge. For almost 135 years, it has stood on the banks of the Grand River. Over the years, it has become a symbol of Cambridge appearing on everything from chocolate boxes to TV weather graphics, but the many years have taken a toll on this symbol of our community.
This beautiful old building is in desperate need of repair. It's roof with its intricate pattern of slate tiles, needs to be replaced. You can help preserve this symbol of the history of Cambridge.
Your donation can help fund the continuing restoration work on the roof. The restoration of the roof above hall and the north half of the sanctuary has been completed. To complete the restoration of the roof, we need to replace the slate on the steeple and the south half of the sanctuary. Once complete, this roof, and the building under it, can last another 100 years.
