What could be more charming than a hundred-year-old church to showcase a mix of primitive antiques, reproductions and handcrafted items? That’s what Diane Kling, owner of The Olde Steeple, considered several years ago as she drove past an abandoned, fire-damaged church in Elma, New York. After an extensive two-year restoration and with the help of family, friends and professionals, the church has emerged even more glorious than when it was built in 1880. Today, large chandeliers grace the main room with original pine flooring and wainscoting adding to the warmth and charm. The reconstructed choir loft has become a beautiful focal point for displaying the primitive wares.
