Long Description:
Union Church

Located easterly on Old Church Road, this wood-frame structure, built in 1771-1773, is the oldest standing Episcopal church in the State, serving the second oldest parish. The parish began in 1768 as a mission of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. The first rector was Reverend Ranna Cossitt (1771-1785).

Located on NH 12-A, the Jarvis Hill Road, about 1 mile south of its junction with NH 12 and 103.

The Union Church was listed on the National Register in 1980.

The waymark is for the location of the actual church building. The historic marker site is several miles away.
