Beautiful, echoing - plans for The Old West Church were originated in 1823. Known then as the First Meeting House Society of Calais, the church underwent a number of additions, from stoves to the admonishment below(originally made of cedar fronds - I don't know if that is still the case), which is visible to all who enter.
" REMOVE NOT THE ANCIENT LAND-MARK WHICH THY FATHERS HAVE SET" (Proverbs 22:28)
Words for us all to live by I'd say!
Whenever I am in a place such as this, I love to run my hands along the wood and just imagine the history that has passed by. We had a long ride ahead of us, so we did not spend the time there that I know I will when I visit Alex and Hannah next.
Beautiful and echoing .......
