As you look at these faces, you must agree that the Committee responsible for the architecture and construction of this church was made up of unusually capable men. The Meeting House of The First Congregational church of Meriden, CT was completed just before this one was built. The architecture was the same of both. It is probably that the Committee visited the one in Meriden and used it as a model, as this church is almost a duplicate of that. I have made this simple tribute to a Committee who built better than they knew.
