1. Glenburn Community Church Marker
Inscription. Erected in 1885 on farmland donated by George M. Rock, the Burgettville Christian Church served both the towns of Burgettville, which extended two miles to the east, and Swazey, later called Glenburn, which was west of the church. As the towns were abandoned, the church fell into disuse. William Hollenbeak purchased the building in 1912, repaired it and re-named it Glenburn Community Church. It was strengthened and restored by parishioners in 1985.
