EXETER – Drivers traveling on Ten Rod Road last Thursday were treated to an amazing site: the entire exterior of the historic Chestnut Hill Baptist Church’s belfry had been taken down, leaving behind a skeleton made of tree trunks surrounding an ancient bell.
As contractors from Keach Framing removed the last remnants – dealt a death blow by Tropical Storm Irene – church members working on the ground put the finishing touches on the new louvers they’d built to create a crown for the venerable meeting house.
