Description:
  • Photos show views of the Unitarian Universalist Church located at 326 Main Street on the east side of the street opposite the Post Office. The church was originally built in 1839 in the Greek Revival style as a temple with a portico on columns facing Main Street. In 1859 the building was substantially altered: it was raised one story, the portico was removed, and a steeple was added. The new version of the building is Italianate in style and has wooden clapboards which on the lower floor are intended to resemble stone. The main entrance on the west end is obscured by a large linden tree in the middle of the front walkway, from which the church's Linden Tree Coffeehouse takes its name. The spire of the church was removed for safety and structural reasons on Tuesday, October 7, 2008.
