Description

On April 1, 1794 the proprietors of Lovell voted to build a meeting house.

The first Town Meeting was held there in 1801.

The original building was two and one-half stories high, but it was later lowered to one story.

In 1828 pews were sold at auction. The building was not used as a church after 1852.
