The iconic bell tower feature of The Malden Bridge Community Center is in need of essential repairs and restoration. Concerns about the bell tower’s long-term stability started to be raised a few years ago. Several area businesses have consulted with us and evaluated the need for repair. All are in agreement that significant work is necessary.
The MBCC building, the former Wesley United Methodist Church, was erected in 1830. Many members of the community trace their family connection to the former church back over a century. The bell tower is a cherished part of the history of Malden Bridge and we are committed to raising funds to meet the need for repair and ensure that the building is well maintained as a community space for future generations. To that end, throughout 2023 and 2024 we will be actively fundraising for the Save The Bell Tower Campaign as well as applying for matching grants to help meet the needs of this expense.
