Latest in Historic Milford Village Series will be highlighted at Winterfest

November 19th, 2009    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Community

The Greater Milford Area Historical Society has developed the seventh piece in the Cats Meow Historic Milford Village Series: St. Andrew the Apostle Church.

St. Andrew Church joins the previous six replica historic buildings – Promont House Museum, Milford Public School, Milford First United Methodist Church, The Korner Barbershop, The Old Stone Library, and Row House Gallery.

The original St. Andrew Church, built during the Civil War, was located at Elm and Water Streets and moved to its current location at 552 Main St. because of repeated flooding on “The Island.”

The beautiful Gothic church held its groundbreaking ceremony on July 9, 1922, and continues to serve the people of Milford and the Cincinnati Diocese.

From 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5 St. Andrew Church will host a community family-fun Winterfest, where the St. Andrew replica will be highlighted.

The Greater Milford Area Historical Society has donated a set of the seven-piece Historic Milford Village Series for a basket that is the paramount offering in Winterfest's Silent Auction.

The miniature replica of St. Andrew the Apostle Church, as well as the entire series, is available at the Promont House Museum Gift Shop during regular museum hours Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 1:30-4:30 p.m., or by appointment.

Collectors may purchase the replica at the St. Andrew parish (513) 831-3353 as well as at Row House Gallery, which, like Promont, sells the entire Historic Milford Village Series, 211 Main St. in Old Milford (513) 831-7230.

The miniature buildings range from $18 to $20 each. Call Promont House Museum, (513) 248-0324, for more information.
