Collection Historical Note

The organization started in 1852, with the Society being established in 1854, first meeting at Central Wharf, and later at the site of the old Main Street Congregational Church, where a new building was erected in 1859. The church was officially “Center Methodist Episcopal Society”, but variously known as Bethel (Central Wharf, 1854), West Main Street (1855-1858), the Free Methodist Church (1858-1868), and Central or Center (1868-1895). The church merged in 1895 with Sachem Street and East Main Street to form Trinity, using the Central Church building. The Center M.E. Society Trustees continued to meet until at least 1907 to resolve property issues. The church building burned in 1959, shortly after a merger with Norwich Town (First) but before the new Lee Memorial church building could be constructed.
