Description:

Postcard shows a view looking north up Main Street from the intersection of Main and Avon Streets. The Universalist Church, visible in the center, was erected on that site in 1839. Major renovations in 1859 moved the building back from the street and added a new front portion and steeple. In 1879 the church was raised to accommodate a downstairs kitchen and vestry. To the left can be seen the Rockery, in the middle of Main Street, and beyond, Wakefield Common and the tower of the First Parish Congregational Church.
