Steeple repair

Scaffolding surrounds the St. John tower on Chapel Street. This view is from the other side of the Cocheco River.

When St. John Methodist moved from its home a block from the Upper Square in downtown Dover, the city acquired the landmark and converted it to low-cost housing. Today the spire is undergoing repair. A few years ago, the steeple on First Parish required similar maintenance.

The long yellow building at the top of the hill and the gray one to its right are new additions to the skyline.
