Property Description

The once in a lifetime opportunity that you have been dreaming about is finally here! Old St. Paul's Church located in Historic Odessa is up for sale and looking for a new owner to steward it into the future for generations to come. The cornerstone for Old St. Paul's was laid in 1851 and has a fantastic legacy in this gem of a town. It has most recently been lovingly restored and meticulously maintained by The Women's Club of Odessa over the last four decades who host M.O.T.'s beloved Christmas In Odessa from there every year. This 3,500+ square foot building is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and boasts a glorious sanctuary with 16+ foot hand-crafted stained glass windows, a plethora of old oak pews, irreplaceable hardwood floors throughout, a dramatic chandelier and balcony seating. "The dominating feature of the church is the Tracker organ with intricately decorated pipes that rise from behind the altar area. The instrument, which is encased in a massive walnut cabinet, was made in the mid-1880s by A. B. Felgemaker & Co. of Erie, PA. It is No. 465 on the Felgemaker 'Opus List' according to the Organ Clearing House in Harrisville, NH" relates Carla Pyle, President of The Women’s Club of Odessa.” "Restoring the old and valuable organ was just one more step in the Club's ongoing project of bringing the old 1852 Church back to its former place as one of the most elegant Greek revival buildings in the area" Pyle said. Downstairs you will find a large office, a large conference room/meeting area, a full kitchen, and two bathrooms. The possibilities are limitless for Old St. Paul's church, but it would make a great home for a new Church, a unique private residence, serene office spaces, a dramatic event venue, dance studio, law office, and on and on... Although the cemetery and irreplaceable organ are being sold separately they can be bundled into this sale if they are of interest to a buyer. All of the mechanicals have been wonderfully updated and maintained, and although inspections are welcome, they are for informational purposes only as the building is being sold as-is. Put this building on your tour today and let your imagination run wild with the potential and opportunity that this Historic Church holds. What are you waiting for? Call your Realtor right away!
