W. Beecher attended, lively meeting of the Hebron. Preser­ vation society conducted its June meeting at thè West Hebron United Pres­ byterian church. Histor­ ical records of all the churches in the Hebron area, ;bottr^]^t aad^ present, were presented. Several churfches hadtheir origins in the 1700’s and are still in existance. Julia Carson painted a picture of the prèvading faith and physical stamina of the farming families that erected and faithfully attended the.Jjorth He- brpn Baptist church. This church still stands as the oldest remaining church in Hebron. John Hurd described with humorous anecdotes from family stories, the_ history and life of the old B e lc h e r ’ M eth’o d ist church. Life in this- small but busy community cen­ ter around this church. Its removal by oxen to its present location in the center of Belcher and addition of belfrey tower and bell was a large event. It still stands, no longer used as a church; - Arthur Olver of the West Hebron Methodist church related the begin­ nings of the early church in the present Grange building in West Hebron. The present beautiful Methodist church with its tall steeple, stained glass windows and converted kerosene lamp fixtures was erected in the 1800’s. Carolyn W ebber touched upon the old brick Convenentor church, now a defunct town barn on the north end of Wèst. He­ bron. This church with­ stood-a damaging twister, was restored, and once so attended, now has passed away, al­ though the building still stands. (Kermit White told of the beginnings in the 1700's of the two locations of the early South Pres­ byterian churches, one the east of Chamberlain Mills road out of West Hebron. Records are sparse and conflicting, so old-photo­ graphs of the last South church now gone are especially interesting. This church merged with the North church that stood on County Route 31 Ralph Reid related how this churqh at . one time; boasted a membership of - 300 persons necessitating lof numerous horse and' wagon sheds behind. and next to the church. In the late !940’s The VFW stayedon top of the league Math a 9 toO shutout of the Lions. Tom Almygqt the \pitching win while getting two hits at plate. - . - * I t was decided to deijdoUstT this church and build a new one next to the manse in the center of West Hebron. A colonial build­ ing of brick with white trim, and classic^pro­ portions, financed in part bythe sale, the parish­ ioners gift’s and sales of best cow, was dedicated in 1949. The history of this United Presbyterian church was . related by Pearle McEachron who planned the entire pro­ gram, . Fascin&ting records. photographs, and artifacts from ¿11 the churches were exhibited. These were explained by Saurah lake, Polly Craig and Nancy Rogers. Lori Rogers gave an. account of the old East Hebron Presbyterian church on route 22. In spite of former frag­ mentation into .other fee* ,tions this small beautiful ' church remains a con­ tinuing force in the lives of its present members. Par­ ticularly interesting were original documents from March 23, 1793 signed by both'parties, Argyle and Hebron, to share a minis­ ter, that were brought to this meeting by Doris McEachron, Argyle town historian. The strong influence* of all these churches con­ tinues to be felt by Hebron residents and lives on still in the spirit and activities of its young people as. presented by Heidi Waite, Lori Rogers, Nancy Flint with a Inal message' by Wesley Clark. During the short busi­ ness meeting that fol­ lowed new slate of officers for the year 1977*78 of the Society was elected.
