Blackman Meeting House
The religious and social center of Bargaintown was Blackman's Meeting House built in 1764 by the Presbyterian residents and the special efforts of John Brainard, a patriot of the Revolution. After 1789, Methodists shared the building and in 1814 purchased it. Needing more space for a growing congregation, a brick building was erected in 1822 close to the original meetinghouse.
Zion Meeting House 1963
The oldest stone in the cemetery dates 1782, thus making the assumption the cemetery is at least 225 years old!
A Cemetery Tour has been mapped out and the tour pamphlets are available in a mailbox on the fence just before entering the cemetery.
Or you can print the tour (formatted on legal size paper).
