Sunday is For Church

[click image to enlarge]

Pictured here is one of the earliest church buildings in Quincy. When first constructed in 1832, the First Universalist Church was a simple Greek Revival structure built on the corner of Elm and Washington Streets in the Quincy Point neighborhood for a sum of $5003.01. The church had numerous regular and supply ministers including Reverend Fannie Austin, who was resident pastor from 1911 to 1913 and believed to be the only woman pastor of a Quincy church, until the late 20th century. The church now belongs to the Assembly of God religious sect and is called Glad Tidings Church.

Winter or Spring?

March has proven to be a fickle month so far.  This pre-school play area illustrates it well.
