First Congregational Church of Hudson

Bringing New and Old Together Seamlessly

When the First Congregational Church of Hudson needed to significantly expand their facility, they called on Welty for construction management. The project included the relocation of the historic Hudson Brick Academy, originally built in 1826, as well as demolition of an existing structure to make room for a school, kitchen, administrative offices and fellowship hall. Welty assured that the exterior and interior detail work on the new building matched the original sanctuary’s 1864 design, including unique millwork and 9-foot arch-top doors. In 2014, when the church needed their 3,800 square foot sanctuary renovated, they again called on Welty. The project included installing new state-of-the-art LED lighting, refinishing intricate pieces of the pipe organ and adding wood trim to match the architectural style of the church.
