Lincoln Center Baptist Church, Lincoln, ca. 1900

This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student at Mattanawcook Jr. High School.


The first clergyman associated with the Lincoln Center Baptist Church was Stephen Chase who came to the settlement in February, 1825. He held meetings, preached, visited the sick, attended funerals and was constant in all duties that pertain to the pastor of a church at what is now Lincoln Center for a period of nearly twenty years. There was no church organization in his time and he did not live to see the erection of the church at Lincoln Center.

Rev. Sylvester Besse arrived at Lincoln Center on 28 November, 1845, from Paris, Maine. He was ordained a little more than a year later, soon after the church dedication on 1 Jan., 1846.
