Creation Date

1869

Description

SV234 — Nelson Dionne Collection. View from the ground to the northeast of the Roger Williams Church, also known today as the Quaker Meeting House, located behind Plummer Hall.

Description from back: "First Church built in Salem. Erected in 1634—now preserved as a relic, in rear of Plummer Hall."

Published "expressly for" Guy & Bros. at 163 Essex Street in "Salem and Vicinity," c. 1872. Photographed by Cook & Friend according to the back, but the view is the same as one by G.K. Proctor, c. 1868-72, and probably derives from him.

Today, the structure is extant but no longer is situated at this exact spot, which is now a parking lot, and it has been moved slightly to the northeast and rotated 90 degrees.

View is the same as SV230 and SV233.
