First Meetinghouse

First Meetinghouse

Site of the first meetinghouse built on the open green in 1640. The bell, hung in 1642, is said to have been brought from England by order of the Reverend William Worcester, who settled here in 1639.

I looked for this one before but despite its central location (that’s the Salisbury Public Library in the background on the left) this one is easy to miss. Many of these markers are missing, and others are in bad shape due to damage from cars, trucks, falling trees, construction, etc., but this one just seems to suffer neglect and from years of exposure to the elements.
