"Saving History" - Stained Glass Restoration

Stained glass artist Bob Zakas and Alayna Kyle were commissioned by developer Ken Crisp to totally restore all the stained glass in the First Congregational Church in Chattanooga. The Lyndhurst Foundation along with the River City Company and Cornerstones provided financing for the project. The church located at the corner of M.L. King Boulevard and Lindsay Street in Chattanooga, Tennessee is under way to apply for a National Historic Register designation.

First Congregational Church is one of Chattanooga's oldest black churches. As part of its history, services began in the church in the early 1900s. There are approximately 6,500 individual pieces of glass in the windows. Mr. Zakas and partner Alayna Kyle cleaned and refit the panes of glass into original wood window frames. Read More»»
