Winthrop, Massachusetts. Union Congregational Church. Records, 1903-2011.
Union Congregational Church was formally organized in 1896 in the Point Shirley neighborhood of Winthrop, MA. Before its organization, this section of Winthrop was sparsely settled and church members had to travel to Congregational Churches in Revere or Chelsea for services. (Winthrop was at this time, still part of Chelsea). Point Shirley had a seasonal summer population boom that later helped grow its year round population. When Point Shirley was settled enough, a "Christian Church at the Beach" was formed, named Union Congregational Church. This church closed in May of 2011.
