Since November 2017, the landmarked St. Paul’s Chapel has been undergoing extensive renovations to protect the building for generations to come. The work has included replacing the roof’s terracotta tiles, adding modern waterproofing on the exterior, cleaning the interior Guastavino ceiling tiles, and restoring and thermal-glazing the 16 stained-glass windows in the dome. The restoration of the 115-year-old building is expected to be completed near the end of 2019.
