BACKGROUND NOTE

Late in the 1870s, a Rev. Mr. Chapin came to Grafton and held meetings which resulted in the conversion of about forty people. A Methodist congregation was formed, and a church building completed in the early 1880s. About 1910 the Methodist organization was disbanded because of loss of members. The building was purchased in 1921 by the Congregational Ladies' Aid Society.
