One Response to Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst (1894)

  1. Janis Gray says:

    The meetinghouse was actually built in 1893. And we do not call it the Unitarian Universalist Church, but the Unitarian Universalist Society. (I am on the board, and one of its historians, just to give this comment some credibility, since how would you know if I knew what I was talking about? :D)

    Thanks for including us, though!
