Well I had coffee again this morning, and well....waiting....caused me to pull more paneling down....and...I discovered something very interesting! Tons of names!! In red crayon/ink pencil was written "Signatures of Salisbury, MO"
The photos aren't the best, and neither is the plaster and I am afraid to lose it all...The only solution I can think of, is to screw Plexiglas over the wall area. It would hold the plaster on and possible keep the signatures but who knows what sunlight might do...I am trying to find a preservation group to see if this is of significance. There is still a lot of paneling left in the breezeway, so there may be more...I might work on moving our temp kitchen into the closet, so I can pull more down...Here is more photos...I might see how many names I can make out and add a list..
Also why I am on posting names of people I have no idea who they are, here are the interior doors of the church and this proves the date of the church.
