The New Durham Congregational Church, was minimally used since church union in 1925 before it was demolished in the late 1930s. I recall as a small child attending an oyster supper in the basement of this church just before it was torn down. It was the former Methodist church in New Durham that was destroyed by the 1979 tornado. It had no basement. I was christened in and attended the Methodist (United) church until I left New Durham for university in 1953. The church was situated about 500 yards up the road from our farm, which was also completely destroyed by the tornado. The Methodist church was bulit in 1853 and enlarged to accommodate a Sunday School in the 1870s, at which time it was also clad in yellowish brick.
