For decades, the quaint white church on the east side of town has slowly been beaten down by Mother Nature. But the wear on the historic building has pushed it into the spotlight.
The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church (CME) of Fredericksburg, located at 520 East Main Street, has been receiving recent renovations thanks to help from local contributors.
Gary Hunter, a San Antonio resident and son of the late Frances Amala Phillips Hunter, has family ties to the church. Since his mother’s passing in 2013, Hunter has overseen developments on the church.
Hunter is currently in the process of accepting donations to complete phase II of renovations and begin phase III.
Phase II, which includes improvements on the inside of the church, is about halfway done, Hunter said.
“We need a licensed electrician to finish the wiring before we can work on A/C and heating,” Hunter said.
