who was our church secretary during this project.

Long Hall was a valuable addition to our church. It was constructed in 1996 under the guidance of Reverend Ron Hardman and many ACUMC friends and members. Herb Long, of Engineering Associates, a lifetime member of ACUMC, was the designing architect. Ivan Weaver Construction, Fredericksburg, OH, was the main contractor.

and Herb Long (the designing architect) looking on.

Above: 9/10/96, Dale Bowers and Pastor Ron, checking out blocks. The holes in these blocks were then filled with concrete and reinforcing rod for extra strength, see next photo.

Above: Filling holes in block with concrete and reinforcing rod to add strength for supporting the heavy steel I-beams.

Note: The worker on the ground scoops the concrete from the wheelbarrow into bucket, hands it up to worker on scaffold, who hands to the worker on top of the block wall.  The worker on top pours the concrete into the holes in the block, the concrete fills the block all the way down to the footer. This adds tremendous strength to the 12 inch block wall.

Above: Heavy support steel beams and steel support posts are installed under Long Hall's main floor. Concrete will be poured on top of these steel beams. This floor will support hundreds of people during the many events that we hold in Long Hall.

Above: November 18th, 1996, back wall going up. 

Above: November 20th, end of day. Main trusses installed. These trusses are as large as can be legally transported on a public highway, additional trusses will be added on top to bring the roof to a peak.
