Minister Log Book

This log book on display in the meetinghouse lists the 'Settled Ministers.' The first four ministers listed: James Wilson (pre 1718), Samuel Torrey (1718-1726), Peleg Heath (1728-1740), and Solomon Townsend (1743-1798) would have been hired and paid by the town. Although the log book shows Reverend Townsend served as Minister until 1798, his tombstone shows he died in 1796. Perhaps his spirit carried on his duties two additional years!
