Old School Baptist Meeting House
Built on a stately knoll in Lewis Park, this beautiful house of worship’s steeple can be seen pointing skyward from wherever you are in town. The first pastor was elder James Benedict. The Baptists constructed their Meeting House in 1810. Most unusual are the twelve-paned windows and the Emblem of Peace that is a carved golden dove with an olive branch in its beak poised above the elegant wineglass pulpit. The barrel ceiling is also an outstanding architectural element. Today the Meeting House is used for weddings open to all, concerts, plays, and Village Christmas Eve service.
