ST. JOHNSVILLE - The New York State Board for Historic Preservation recommended a village church be added to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
According to a news release, the board recommended the First Methodist Episcopal Church be included on the registers.
"Built in 1879, the red brick church is notable for its refined design and was financed entirely by subscription, evoking the era of prosperity enjoyed by St. Johnsville and its Methodist Episcopal congregation during the latter half of the 19th century," a news release said.
