It was built about 1835 and is a two story, rectangular frame meeting house, sheathed in clapboard and with a gable roof.

2. The Seventh Day Baptists.
The Seventh Day Baptists were first known as Sabbatarians, but the term Seventh Day Baptists was adopted by them in England soon after the Reformation. At what precise time the seventh-day observers took denominational form is not too definite. According to Ross's Picture of All Religions (quoted in Manual of the Seventh Day Baptists), they appeared in Germany and England early in the sixteenth century.
