Significance: First built in 1749-30, this structure is the product of major modifications in 1803 and 1838. It was first cut in two and enlarged by moving the back section 28 feet away. In 1838 the galleries were removed and a floor added about 10 feet above the sills to improve acoustics. The most significant features of the buildings include an excellent tower and pews...
