Also see . . . Centre Congregational Church. This church has a dramatic history. It was originally built in 1816 on the Common north of the village. By 1842 the church was in disrepair and too far north to be readily accessible to the congregation. It was then taken apart, moved here, and reconstructed. In 1864 the steeple blew down in a violent storm and the tower you see in the front was built to replace it. this tower contains the original town clock, also moved from the Common. In 1927 a fire partly destroyed the tower and the roof but they were rebuilt and replicated. (Submitted on July 10, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
