It all began in 1957, when the parishioners of the Grace Episcopal Church on Merrick Road moved to a new, larger and more modern church across the busy road to the south.
The historic old church was no longer used, except when specially requested by some members. This left the building vulnerable to continuous attacks by vandals. By the end of the 1970s, the church vestry made the decision to remove the six large dedicated stained glass windows and cover the openings with plywood. The religious furnishings and the windows were put in storage for safekeeping.
