Our History Book of the Abington Congregational Church

Yahoo! GeoCities

Below are copied several pages from a book which the Abington Church published as part of its 250th anniversary celebration. It reproduces some important chronicles which earlier generations have written about our church. But it begins with a work of historical fiction. Marc Johnson adapted our church's saga to a novella which captures the spirit of each era in a way that a mere chronicle could not. And the book concludes with a poem written by Mary Ingalls Pierce for our church's 150th Anniversary in 1901, which is reproduced below. The book is available for $15 plus $4 for shipping by sending a check made out to "The Abington Congregational Church" to PO Box 289, Pomfret Center, CT 06259.
