1. First Meeting House Marker
Inscription.
On this plot was raised in 1739, the first
meeting house of New Hartford and on these
very foundations the second church was built
in 1829. After 1854 it was no longer used as a place
of worship and was finally removed in 1929.
For one hundred and fifteen years four
pastors ministered here to the townspeople until
these turned more and more from agriculture
to manufacturing and made their homes in the
adjacent valleys north and south.

Reverend Jonathan Marsh 1739-1791
Reverend Edward D. Griffin 1795-1801
Reverend Amasa Jerome 1802-1813
Reverend Cyrus Yale 1814-1854
