CHRIST CHURCH,



GARDINER, MAINE.



ANTECEDENTS AND HISTORY.



BY



KVELVN L. (IILMORF:.



GARDINER:

THE RF,P(mTER-J()URNAT. PRESS,
1893.



PREFACE.



In the following sketch of an old and venerated church, it has
been found necessary to rely much upon the traditions of the
neighborhood. It is hoped, however, that the reader will be
lenient to the imperfections of the work, and that it may serve, at
least, to embody some few facts which are fading from the mem-
ory of Gardiner's churchmen.

The writer desires to express her sincere thanks to all who have
aided in her undertaking, and have kindly furnished her with ref-
erences, manuscripts, or anecdotes. She duly acknowledges her
indebtedness to the Massachusetts Historical Society for the use of
its unpublished collection referring to Dr. Sylvester Gardiner and
his family.

Upon this, the hundredth birth-day of "old Christ Church,"
there can be none among us who does not rejoice in the fairness
of her past story, and wish her (iod's grace for the future.
