Dover church to host ceremony ahead of its demolition

DOVER (AP) — An 83-year-old New Hampshire church will hold a closing ceremony this weekend ahead of its upcoming demolition to make room for a housing development.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports the ceremony on Sunday will celebrate the history of St. Charles Church and allow the Dover community to say goodbye.

The church and its rectory will be torn down this summer to make room for a housing development dubbed Bradley Commons. The Rev. Agapit Jean of the Parish of the Assumption says the developer has agreed to install several of the church's windows along with a memory case inside the facility.

The church was built in 1933 following a fire that destroyed the previous house of worship a year earlier.
