Pictures of Churches in Redding, Connecticut (CT)  

cgrchrch.jpg (312350 bytes)

Congregational Church when it was the Methodist Church, home of the Methodist Society since 1789, and when a few were able to shelter horses and carriages under sheds. From 1921 until the Methodists withdrew in 1958, this was the Federated Church.(From 1967 Redding Bicentennial Program, Historical Society Photos)

The Rev. John Beach, a steadfast Tory, preached for half a century, until his death in 1782, in Christ Church, Episcopal, on Redding Ridge. During the Revolution, patriots fired at Rev. Beach, and General Tryon's men shot the legs from the weathercock on the roof.

History of Redding is a not a business or an organization..It's one person working to promote the history of his hometown
and surrounding areas. All costs are out-of-pocket so donations and/or sponsorships will allow me to dedicate more time
