Grand Traverse Co. Church Lifts Landmark Dome Into Place

A year of construction and decades in the making. A Northern Michigan church lifted a landmark into place Thursday morning.

A 42,000 pound dome was lifted into the air Thursday morning in Grand Traverse County.

The dome sits on top of what will be the new Archangel Gabriel Greek Orthodox Church.

The church has been renting space in Traverse City for years, but the raising of the dome is a milestone for the construction process.

The congregation hopes to move in this fall.
