          Anyone looking at the Historic Rectory[built in 1850] would immediately ask, “Why doesn’t the pastor do something to fix this place!?” I agree: the walls are a mess: having sustained water damage from the leaking roof, and looking very dirty [because of automobile exhaust, which I can’t fix], the place needs to be renovated desperately. The cost will be large: possibly as much as $500,000.00.
