Long Description:
Text of Marker:
This Meeting House was an outgrowth of the
time when Proprietors of the town were
responsible for the encouragement of religion.
It was built in 1796 when church and state
were intertwined. Until 1819, regardless of
denomination and belief, residents were con-
sidered members of this parish and their tax
money supported the minister. In 1839 the town
became owner of this edifice and the church
society its tenant and this arrangement
remains today. This building of simple colonial
architecture still embraces some of the
religious and civil affairs of the community
and stands as a monument to pure democracy.
