Congregational Church Choir, Princeton, ca. 1952

Contributed by Princeton Public Library


The first Congregational Church in Princeton was built in 1858, and is the oldest church in town. It has been written that some of the early seats in the gallery were taken from a discarded passenger car of the Calais and Baring Railroad. In 1900 the church was remodeled and the vestry built. The Congregational Church is still active in Princeton today, in 2013.
