Solon Historical Society

Solon, OH (circa 1890s – Formerly: Disciples of Christ Church)

Now used as a historical archive for the city of Solon, the structure was originally built as a church with windows original to the construction. 1 large narthex window and a pair of transomed windows in the sanctuary were selected for full restoration.

  • Removal of leaded panels
  • Panels disassembled and rebuilt with new lead, solder, and cement
  • Nameplates (originally painted with non-permanent ‘cold-paints’) repainted and kiln-fired for permanence
  • Steel division bars replaced along with new painted steel ‘T’-bars; new heavier cold-rolled round steel bars installed to the interior to help support weight of the large leaded glass panels
  • Panels re-installed and sealed along perimeters/division bars with urethane hybrid sealant
