ALBION – A group of volunteers led by Gary Plummer (in orange shirt) continued to work on a new retaining wall for the First Presbyterian Church of Albion on Wednesday.

The volunteers have put in a wall of decorative stone blocks to replace rotted wood.

Plummer digs into the ground to make room for the stone. The church is located at the corner of East State and Main Street and is part of the Courthouse Square Historic District, which is named to the National Register of Historic Places.

Jeremy Neal (standing) and his father Ed Neal, both Albion dairy farmers, helped Plummer with the project on Wednesday. Eric Brown from Orchard Dale Fruit Farm also assisted in building the new front wall.

Jeremy Neal and his niece, Melissa Robinson, put the top stone caps on the wall.
