Saint Vasilios Greek Orthodox Church  Peabody, MA

St. Vasilios Greek Orthodox Church was established in 1905 by a group of Greek immigrants drawn to Peabody, Massachusetts, by the leather industry. Designed by an unknown architect, the church' second home was completed in 1917. A modified “cross-in-square” plan, the handsome church building exhibits the characteristic form and features of Greek Orthodox architecture.


Our firm was engaged in 2012 to perform a comprehensive conditions assessment of the building with special focus on the bell towers, where persistent leaks had damaged their structural integrity and harmed finishes in the sanctuary vaults below. The report provided prioritized treatment recommendations for stabilization and preservation and explored options for roof replacement.


Spencer & Vogt group produced graphic materials that supported a successful capital campaign in 2013. A comprehensive work plan was completed in 2014 that included the repairs outlined in the conditions assessment and installation of a standing seam copper roof.
