Local Church History

Jess received a copy of Holy Granite on High Ground : A 300-year history of the Second Congregational Church of Greenwich, Connecticut by Ralph E. Ahlberg. The Congregational Library received photo credit for the copy of the 1682 The Whole Book of Psalms on page 23. This church history book is filled with photos and illustrations chronicling the church from its founding to the present day. It contains a time line and lists of Second Church ministers and church council presidents. From the dust cover: "...the story of this community -- of the parishioners, lay leaders, administrators, volunteers and pastors who for three centuries have kept the Christian flame burning in downtown Greenwich." We're very pleased to add this book to our collection.
