Historic church in New London may be razed if buyer not found
NEW LONDON — Built by Swedish immigrants 140 years ago, a white steepled church perched on a rise overlooking New London’s Mill Pond may be standing for only another six months unless someone steps up to take ownership of the vacant building.
“It’s a building of historic value. It’s a building of historic interest,” said the Rev. Keith Pearson, pastor at Peace Lutheran Church in New London, which owns the church and three city blocks it sits on.
