Abstract: "Sometimes what is in the present is in the past; sometimes not. In a quiet sector of Stamford that was known as the Bangall District, on a rustic half-acre, is a simple 100 year-old building set within old stone wall boundaries. The old structure with its two front doors looks like a Friends Meeting House. While it is now, it wasn't originally. In fact, the site gives no easily visible evidence of the oldest structure that was on it: the first Baptist church in Stamford. The present structure was a one-room schoolhouse that was moved to the site. This paper will try to recount the changes at the site from 1771 through the present which have been uncovered thus far." Judith F. Abraham, p. 1. (Reproduced with permission of the author.)
