SOUTHBURY CONNECTICUT – Here’s another installment in my project of photographing churches in Litchfield County Connecticut. This is the Southbury Congregational Church. See the gallery to the right. According to the Church’s website:

The Southbury Congregational Church was founded in 1732.

It occupied several sites until a third church was built on the present site in 1844. In 1923 the members voted to federate with the Methodist, and from 1923 until 1957 this church was known as the Federated Church of Southbury. The Federated Church served the spiritual needs of the community until the Methodist Conference requested that the federation be dissolved. In 1957 the Congregational Christian Churches and the Evangelical and Reformed Church joined to form The United Church of Christ, and in 1966 the members of this church voted to join the new denomination. At that time the name of the church became The United Church of Christ, Southbury.

Captured with my Leica M9 and a 50mm Summilux lens; three frames stitched.
