1. Methodist Church Marker
Inscription.
This building was graced with the first church bell and spire in town. Built in 1850 on the site of the Old Red Store, a pioneer tavern, the church was dedicated on January 8, 1851. A Greek Revival portico with two fluted Doric columns was replaced with the pilastered façade and Palladian window in 1888, when the church was elevated to provide new meeting space. Stained glass by Redding and Baird of Boston was added in 1901. This was the first permanent home for Methodists who had been meeting since 1800.
