Here's The Church


The following is the seventh part of "The United Attawaugan Methodist Church 1870-1970 100th Anniversary", a history of the church produced by the members for the centennial anniversary. You'll read it here exactly as it was written then.


Early Days Of First Church At Attawaugan

Described by Horatio Brown of Putnam

Established in 1870 with Rev. Nelson Goodrich as the minister


Records Of Interest
Part Three

Mr. Elmer C. Wood called a meeting to be held at Mr. Benjamin Leonard's home on August 23, 1938, and voted to buy a new "steam heating furnace" for oour church, using what money we had with donations, Sunday School money, if necessary, also Ballard Fund due seventy-five dollars. We had two hundred and fifty dollars. Furnace to cost three hundred and fifty dollars and new radiators about seventy-five dollars, this does not include labor. The new furnace arrived September 10, 1938, and was installed immediately. Rev. Charles X. Hutchinson was the pastor, James Watson, janitor and Sunday School superintendent.
The church belfry was damaged in the "1938 Hurricane". On August 19, 1939, Mr. Harrington, mill superintendent began to build a new one.
On March 17, 1940, there was an entertainment program with Miss Emma Burbank's students taking part in music and piano selections, there was good attendance, among them Mr. Ernest Warren, who was principal of the Killingly High School. On this occasion a new electric organ, which was given to the Attawaugan Church by the choir, was dedicated. Mrs. Bertha Cornell was the choir director at this time. The organ was dedicated by Charles X. Hutchinson. Many old familiar songs were sung and truly enjoyed by all. There was a balance on the new organ, so we held the musical to finish paying the balance.
