Community Church of Harrisville and Chesham, 1842

Community Church of Harrisville and Chesham, 1842

Community Church of Harrisville and Chesham, 1842

Set back from the canal, the church is only a few steps from Island Cemetery. Both were financed principally by Bethuel Harris who spent much of his later years concerned with religious and cultural improvements in the mill village. The brick building is Greek Revival in style, with heavy granite lintels over twin entrances, a large white pediment, and a graceful spire. The robust, eight-panel doors with wrought iron latches and surrounding sidelights are probably original, as are the very large fixed windows on the lateral sides of the building. In the 1990s, new granite steps replaced the original ones. Owned by the Community Church of Harrisville and Chesham.
