Meetinghouse Moments

Meet Our Historian

Nora Oakes Howard,

The Avon Congregational Church will soon celebrate a series of 200th anniversaries. In December (date unknown but between Dec. 18-31), it will be 200 years since a fire destroyed Avon's original meetinghouse. 

One year from now (October 5, 2018) we will mark the 200th anniversary of our petition to the Connecticut General Assembly to incorporate as the Religious Association of Farmington (also known as the United Society of Farmington).  

On September 7, 2019, we will mark the 200th anniversary of the first documented service in the new meetinghouse.  I hope you will enjoy Meetinghouse Moments, as our members have sought to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ over the past two centuries.

Nora Howard, ACC Historian
