Rural Church

Sitting at the meeting of Jersey Street and Rte. 17 is the West Addison Methodist Church. The Methodist Church, located at West Addison, was organized by Rev. H. Meeker, the first settled pastor, in 1825, with six members. A church building was erected at an early date, which did service till 1881, when the present structure was erected, which will comfortably seat 200 persons, and is valued, including grounds, at $3,000. The society has about fifty members, but is now without a pastor and regular service.” I would guess there is an error on the value of the if that is today’s value.West Addison Methodist Church (4)Triangle of Rte.17, Jersey St. and Church St. West Addison, Vermont 02/11/2006

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
