Summary "In December 1817, the only church in Avon burned down, and it was probably arson. The people had no choice but to split the congregation in two, after decades of conflict about where to build a new meetinghouse. The Pastor of West Avon's church had retired after 50 years, and the new church in East Avon didn't even have a pastor. It was time to begin anew"--Back cover.
