Historical Sketch
The Town of Salisbury was chartered November 3, 1761. The first two clearings for a settlement were made by Joshua Graves in the Spring and Amos Story in the Fall of 1774. Religious worship was first established by Eleazer Claghorn, Solomon Story and Holland Weeks. Mr. Claghorn came in 1784. Rev Mr. Barnet was the first pastor in Middlebury. Lectures were given by Rev. Mr. Wooster of Cornwall and Rev. Mr. Chittenden, a missionary from Connecticut. Abiel Jones settled as Pastor & physician in the summer of 1804. The Rev. Messrs. Bushnell, Hibbard and Merrill also rendered their services. Pastor Joseph Cheney died in 1834. He sustained an injury in 1822 which caused him to be dismissed in 1823. The Rev. E. G. Smith, of Middlebury, preached in 1868. Prof. Webber, of Middlebury College, preached with others in 1869. In 1870, the Revs. John Steet and Barton, of Middlebury, officiated in the Church. Mr. Wells Utley, a Middlebury student, preached January 1871 to January 1873. Rev. Vandecar was a Methodist Ministe
