— The Town of Morrisville planned to move an old church Thursday to repair its foundation.

The building, at 222 Church St., is known as the Christian Church, but it has not been in use for more than 70 years, Tony Chiotakis, a town spokesman said. It served briefly as the town hall.

Years of disuse have left the church with foundation problems, so the town contracted with Beau Chene Company, LLC, to move the building, fix the foundation and restore it to its rightful place.

The work will cost an estimated $290,000 and is expected to take about six months to complete.

After repair and renovation are complete, the town plans to apply for the structure to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places and use it for office space, a temporary visitors' center and a rental facility for small groups.
