NotesNon-denominational community meetinghouse, built 1772. Nails and hinges hand wrought, likewise boards and shingles hewn by hand. Each window cost a cow. When repaired, 1872, the original shingles were found to be better than the new ones. Some of the old fashioned, square pews are still held be descendants of the first occupants. When the Plymouth Pilgrims so nearly starved that first Winter, it was to the settlement, already several years old, founded 1607 then Pemaquid Patent, now Bristol, to whom they came for the aid which kept them from starving.
