Description:

"When viewed through a stereoscope or special glasses, two superimposed stereoscopic pictures create a two [i.e three] dimensional effect. The third home of the First Parish Congregational Church was built in 1768, facing west at the site of its current home adjacent to the lower common. It was turned to face south in 1859 with its interior enlarged and modernized. By the 1880s, the church was said to be in need of extensive repairs. A farewell service was held in May 1890 and the building was razed soon after." -- Text from calendar by Jayne M. D'Onofrio.
