Church to mark 250 years

PIERMONT—In 1771, the few people living in Piermont gathered to form a church.
Back then, there was no pastoral leadership or church buildings. In those years, Sunday meetings were held in the houses of the early settlers. But as the town of Piermont grew and evolved through the years, so did the church, which remains today.
This weekend, the Piermont Congregational Church will celebrate 250 years. On Aug. 21, from 1 to 4 p.m., there will be a free barbecue and live music featuring Patrick Ross and The Fiddler’s Crew. All from the surrounding community are invited.
