View of the interior of a memorial window in the First United Church. The window depicts a woman holding a book. This window is a memorial to Annie Porter Shaw, 1835-1867 and to Joseph Freeman Porter, 1847-1869.;The First United Church was built in the late 1800's. This church was the composite of two churches, the Bethany Baptist Church and the First Christian Church ... In May of 1913, for their mutual benefit, the two congregations united." The church closed around 2000 "due to a steady decline in membership."--Jean F. Reardon, from Swampscott, Massachusetts : celebrating 150 years, 1852-2002, Swampscott Historical Commission, 2002.
