Between 1743, just four short years after the first white settler arrived, and 1928 the faithful of many religious traditions either came through or settled in the Northwest Corner. On Sunday Harriet Shapiro and Ellen Paul presented the stories of five of those traditions and the marks they left on our Warren landscape.
Thanks to the amazing sleuthing of board member, Heather Blue Forstmann, attendees at the Sunday lecture met the Rev. Peter Starr, the Warren Church’s second minister. Born in the 18th Century, a graduate of Yale at just 16, British subject until converted to the Patriot cause and the force behind the construction of the church building which now stands in the center of Warren.
Look for upcoming programs which will explore faith in our northwest corner of Connecticut.
On January 28th at 2 pm in the lower meeting room at Warren Town Hall, 50 Cemetery Rd., Warren
A Walk in Starr-light
Heather Forstmann will share the results of her research into the life and times of Peter Starr, the Warren Church’s longest serving minister.
Join us after the talk for light refreshments.
