1. New Durham Meeting House Marker
Inscription. The New Durham Meetinghouse was built by settlers from Durham and nearby towns in 1770 as their house of worship and seat of government until 1819 when the town's first church was built. This area was the town center until the 1850's when the arrival of the railroad favored development in "the Plains" The meetinghouse was reduced to 1 story in 1838, vacated in 1908. The town had it listed on the National Registry in 1980. It can be found by following Davis Crossing Road and turning left on Old Bay.
