Saint Peter's Pearly Gates

The pearly gates are back!

The gates are still missing. They were removed to be refurbished. The work is complete so it's just a matter of them being rehung. Call the Chamber of Commerce to confirm that they are back before you make your way there.

The Pearly Gates have indeed been removed. All that remains are the brick pillars that the gates had previously been mounted to.

I made my way over to Saint Peter's Pearly Gates today. Unfortunately there was quite a bit of construction and, as far as I could tell, the gates had been removed. I am not sure if this is temporary, which it might very well be because of the amount of construction, or if they are removed for good.

We checked with the town, and they told us that the gates are still there and have not been removed. They're just a little difficult to get to because of construction on a nearby bridge.
