As part of our weekly building history series, today we take a look at the Congregational Church in Pittsfield, New Hampshire:
“The first Congregational Church was established in 1789 and built on the corner of Broadway and Main. The first church on this site was a wooden structure built in 1839. After the disastrous fire of February 14, 1876, this brick edifice was erected. The bell, donated by R.L. French in 1859, was recast from the original. The “Town Clock,” originally donated by Thomas Berry, was replaced by J.L. French. A memorial tablet inside lists the nine original members including John Cram, the town’s father.”

Also, we are constantly on the look-out for new building histories to add to our picture galleries. If you know of a town the features building historical markers, in the real-world or virtually, please let us know. You can leave a comment on this post or contact us via the contact page. Thanks!
