Three Mile Creek Ward Chapel

Built in 1890, the Three Mile Creek Ward (later renamed the Perry Ward) building has stood for over a century. It was purchased by the local Heritage Theatre in 1975 after having stood vacant for several years. It's apparent that the building has undergone some changes:

It's unfortunate that the tower has changed so drastically from its original appearance; the older version was much more authentic to the building.

By the time this picture was taken, the newer tower was up. Unfortunately, neither of these pictures provide a clear view of what was inscribed in the circle above the main entrance. That circle has since been removed and bricked in. If anyone has any information on what the circle originally had inscribed, I would be very interested to know.
