The Palmer's River Meeting House
Construction started in 1717 and completed November 29th 1721, with Reverend David Turner as pastor. Fifty pounds was donated towards the cost of the building by the Newman church, the first meeting house built when the town was established in 1643, in present day Rumford.
On March 8th 1773 the church voted that the meeting house should be pulled down, and a new one built near Timothy Redway's plain, the present site of the village cemetery
