This offering is for the beautiful 50" wide antique church pew pictured. It is made of ash, walnut, and maple and is 125 years old (the Pennsylvania church building it was used in was built in 1894). The end panels are very ornate. The pew was used in the St. Peters Evangelical Congregational Church, Weissport / Lehighton, Pa. The church was closed 3 years ago and the St. Peters Community Resources Center is now located in the building. The outside dimension of the pew is 49"; the end panels are 35" high and the pew will extend 21" our from a wall, when placed up against it. The seat is 14 1/2" deep and the seat height is 16 1/2" from the floor.
I will give the buyer copies of a number of historical documents taken from Pennsylvania and Carbon County, Pa. historical records and a copy of a letter sent to me by a Pennsylvania area pastor giving some additional historical information regarding the church and also a 5 x 7 print of the church that would be suitable for framing and mounting on a wall near where the pew is placed. This documents offering feature is one that makes my offering unique to all other sellers of antique church pews.
I have additional pews from this lot that have not yet been assembled and can offer buyers a pew/ (pews) in their choice of length up to 7 ft. wide. I also have other pews from this lot of pews that are listed on craigslist. I will discount the per pew price for any purchases of 3 or more pews. These pews would be wonderful for use in a home "chapel" or for use as office waiting room or reception seating......if you are using an architect to design an area you think could benefit from the use of several of these pews, please contact me in that regard.
