Fremont Street Methodist Episcopal Church. - In the early part of the year 1875 the membership of the First Methodist Episcopal Church of Gloversville, numbering more than 900, had become so large that it was deemed necessary to found a new Methodist society. In April of the above mentioned year, a wooden church edifice on Fremont street, built by the Episcopal society at a cost of about $9,000, became available property, and was purchased by Daniel Hays, W. H. Place, James Kent, H. Jordan and F. W. Stevens, all of whom, with the single exception of Mr. Stevens, were members of the First Methodist Church. Affairs of the new society now began to take definite form. An application to conference resulted in the appointment of H. A. Starks as first pastor, and the name given to the congregation was the Second Methodist Episcopal Society of Gloversville. May 3, 1875, a meeting of the First Church was held at the house of Pastor Sexton, a call was made for volunteers to the new enterprise and about forty names of members were pledged, as well as several who expressed their willingness to become members of the new society. The following Sunday, May 9, the first services were held in the new church, and on the first succeeding Sabbath a Sunday school was organized with the following officers: Superintendent, H. Jordan; assistant superintendent, E. H. Caswell; lady superintendent, Mrs. J. M. Wood; secretary, William Muddle; treasurer, J. Muddle. The first board of trustees was elected May 18, as follows: Hiram Jordan, Harvey Kasson, Randolph Day, Fred Stevens and J. M. Wood. At the same meeting J. W. Place, George Wood and E. H. Eisenbury were appointed stewards, and John Muddle, Hiram Jordan and P. J. Keck, class leaders. On Wednesday, July 14, 1875, the church was dedicated to the worship of God, Bishop Bowman officiating. The name of the society was changed to the Fremont Street Methodist Episcopal Church on July 26 of the same year, at a meeting called for that especial purpose. Pastor Starks remained with the church two years and did much to make the infant society a success. Upon his departure in 1877 he left a membership of 179, with fifty probationers. He was followed in the pastorate by J. H. Coleman, during the third year of whose labor with the church the entire indebtedness was paid off. Pastor Coleman was succeeded in 1880 by Rev. George C. Morehouse, who labored faithfully until April, 1883, when Rev. W. P. Rulison was assigned to the pastorate. At this time the question of a new church edifice was agitated, and the movement assumed definite shape in 1885, when it was decided to build a house of worship. The present beautiful structure on Fremont street was completed early in July, 1886, during the first few months of the pastorate ate of William M. Brundage. The church was dedicated July 11, by Rev. J. M. Hamilton. The auditorium is on the second floor, and has a capacity of between seven and eight hundred persons. Pastor Brundage was followed in 1889 by Rev. T. G. Thompson, who has served the society very acceptably, the most pleasant relations existing between pastor and people. When the duration of his regular pastorate expired in 1891, he received an urgent call to continue his ministry for another year, and hence is the first pastor in the history of the church to extend his services beyond the three years limit. At present the membership of the church is 950, while that of the Sunday school. is 681.

The trustees of the church are C. S. Schermerhorn, W. N. Stewart, J. M. Thompson, Charles Keifer, M. Hodder, P. J. Keck, G. W. Schermerhorn, Dr. John Edwards and Joseph Hemstreet. The stewards are Ralph Sexton, William Muddle, F. Cuyler, C. J. Skiff, W. H. Jansen, Oaksford, N. E. Dutcher, David Warner, M. J. Owen, David Burton, S. A. Moore, F. Denham and J. M. Lair. The class leaders are T. Dobinson, Mrs. T. Dobinson, P. J. Keck, M. E. Brockway, Lemuel Heacock, Peacock Heacocic,Heacocktewart, J. G. Smith, John Muddle, Solomon Jeffers, Robert Swan. Mrs. Christian Fosmire, G. S. Wheaton and J. R. Thompson. J. M. Thompson is superintendent of the Sunday school and is assisted by P. J. Keck, Mrs. R. Glasgow and Mrs. Charles Keifer.

North Main Street Methodist Episcopal Church. - This is the third of its denomination in Gloversville, was the outgrowth of the Kingsboro class of the First Methodist Episcopal church, formed in 1885 by Rev. Henry Graham the pastor, and placed under the leadership of J. W. Rice, a man whose services have been of great value to the society. The first meeting of this class, consisting of twenty seven members, was held Thursday evening, March 19, 1885. Ear1y in 1887 a house owned by Daniel Hays (to whose continued interest and generous financial aid the young society is greatly indebted), was used for worship, and Rev. J. H. Coleman, then pastor of the First church and a warm friend of the mission, preached on Sunday afternoon. In the fall of 1887 Rev. R. T. Wade took charge of the work and continued his service until the close of the conference year. A house, costing $2,000 and having seating capacity for 225 persons, was dedicated January 15, 1888, with sufficient subscriptions were secured to cover all expenses. The church was regularly organized February 21, 1888, with forty eight members. At the following session of the Troy Conference Rev. M. L. Fisher was appointed the first regular pastor. Under his zealous labors for two years the society grew until 124 full members were upon the records, and both Sunday school and congregation filled the house to overflowing. Soon after the appointment of Rev. E. Wiseman, in 1890, a movement was set on foot for a new church. It was decided to build and finish the interior of the first story only for the present. Rev. E. Wiseman, J. W. Rice, George Plue and J. G. Eaton, of North Main street, Daniel Hays of the First church, and J. M. Thompson of Fremont Street church were the building committee. The new church was dedicated January 3, 1892, the First and Fremont Street churches uniting in the services. Rev. J. Z Armstrong preached in the morning, and Rev. T. G. Thompson in the evening. Presiding Elder Graham preached in the afternoon, and also presented the financial necessities. This resulted in the securing of $5,682, enough to cover all remaining indebtedness and to fit the former house of worship for a parsonage, for which purpose it had been originally designed. The entire cost of the church to its present stage of completion has been $11,060, and its entire seating capacity is 700. It is conveniently located on the corner of North Main and Potter streets, and presents an imposing external appearance. When completed it will cost about $20,000. March 8, 1892, the full membership was 208 with twelves probationers. This young church having just celebrated its fourth anniversary, has 220 communicants, a Sunday school of 800, a Young People's society of sixty, and a property worth $13,000. The following are its officers: Pastor, Eugene Wiseman; superintendent of Sunday school, George Flue; class leaders, J. W. Rice, E. J. Anderson, Mrs. Benjamin Ellsworth; stewards, J. W. Rice, D. H. Cole, Morgan Putnam, George Flue, E. J. Anderson, P. H. Brown, J. G. Eaton, T. F. Hills, J. F. Loop, Elmer Tyrrell, William Hemstreet; trustees, Daniel Hays, Charles Keifer, J. W. Rice, William Hodder, Benjamin Rice, M. L. Dennie, George Copeland and James H. Washburn.

East Fulton Street Methodist Episcopal Church. - During the summer of 1889 the members of the First Methodist Episcopal church became impressed with the need of religious services in the eastern section of the city, and erected a neat and commodious chapel at the corner of East Fulton and Chestnut streets, at a cost of $4,000. The chapel was dedicated November 17, 1889, Lewis A. Tate presenting the building for dedication on behalf of the trustees. The services upon this occasion were conducted by Rev. Henry Graham, presiding elder, and C. W. Rowley, pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal church. As an evidence of the interest taken in the undertaking, it may be added that the entire cost of the edifice was provided for upon the day of dedication. A Sabbath school was organized and was greatly appreciated by the children in that part of the city. It was conducted under the auspices of the First Methodist Episcopal church, and preaching was had at intervals. Prayer meetings were held, however, regularly once a week. This condition continued until April, 1892, when, at the annual session of the Troy Conference held at Plattsburgh, the Rev. Robert H. Washburne was appointed pastor in charge, and regular services are now held every Sabbath.

St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church. - The first house of worship reglarly occupied by the Roman Catholics in Gloversville was a small church on the Pine street hill, purchased by them in an unfinished state in 1874. Rev. Gillem was the first pastor, but remained only a short time. He was succeeded by Rev. W. Kempen, under whose charge the Pine Street church was completed. lie resigned in April, 1876, and a year later Rev. Michael Killeen assumed charge of the parish. Under his care the beautiful brick church on Fremont street was erected.

First Baptist Church. - Prior to 1838 there were only a few Baptists scattered through the country in the immediate vicinity of Gloversville. They had for two years or more enjoyed the labors of Revs. Knapp, Groom, Hutchins and Whitman. In the summer of the above mentioned years, Rev. Erastus Miner, of Pleasant Valley, came to Gloversville to preach a funeral sermon. His sympathies were at once enlisted in behalf of the Baptists in that community, and he left his own people and gave part of his time to religious efforts in the then primitive village. Notice was given for all Baptist members to assemble on a given day to decide the question of organizing either a branch connection with Pleasant Valley or an independent church. It is said that when the day arrived, it rained, and in consequence no one attended the proposed meeting. The record says, "In order that the project should not fail, Brother Abel S. Leaton started on foot from Johnstown and looked them up again, and appointed a meeting the following week." At this meeting, which was held in the village school house, it was unanimously agreed, after consultation, to become a branch of the Pleasant Valley Church, and the second Sunday following was appointed as the time when the organization should be effected. No definite action was taken then or directly afterward, but preaching was maintained and the meetings were continued. Conversions were frequent and a number of baptisms took place on October 28, November 5 and 25, 1838. On January 6, 1839, five were baptized on profession of faith. The following Sunday evening, January 13, it was unanimously agreed to organize an independent Baptist Church on Tuesday, January 15, 1839, and the original purpose of becoming a branch of the Pleasant Valley Church was abandoned. According to appointment a meeting was held in Burr's assembly room January 15, 1839. Rev. Miner read the 132d Psalm, and an opening prayer was coffered by Rev. Gale. Later on Mr. Gale administered the charge and Mr. Miner gave the right hand of fellowship, during which all those present, nineteen in number, arose and stood in a semi circle. The church was then and there organized and named the First Baptist Church of Gloversville, N. Y. Abel S. Leaton was chosen stated clerk, and an election of trustees resulted in the choice of Henry Churchill, George Washburn, Abel S. Leaton, H. C. Thomas, L. F. Cooper, and Joab Phelps. It was also resolved, "That the building committee consist of the trustees, and they be and are hereby authorized to purchase a site for a meeting house, and have full power to act in all matters in relation to the erection and final completion of said meeting house." On the first Sunday in March, 1839, the church celebrated the memorial ordinance of the Lord's supper for the first time. The names of the nineteen constituent members are as follows: H. C. Thomas, J. C. Valentine, Thomas B. Kenyon, Cuyler Shottenkirk, William Dillingham, John Whiting, Abel S. Leaton, Mrs. Elizabeth Ward, Mrs. Nancy Hill, Mrs. Sarah Curtis, Mrs. Rachel Kenyon, Mrs. C. C. Warner, Miss Sarah Hare, Miss Maria Evinskey, Miss Margaret Van Steinburgh. The church was formally admitted to the Saratoga Baptist Association at the annual meeting held in Stillwater, June 25, 1839. October 6, 1839, a call was extended to Rev. D. Corwin to become pastor, and on Sunday, November 3, he preached for them and gave acceptance of the call. The first deacons of the church were elected in August, 1841, as follows: H. C. Thomas and S. Judson. Deacon Thomas held the office continuously during a period of forty eight years, well beloved and honored by the church. The first house of worship was situated on Main street, the building long known as Fox's Block. It was completed and dedicated September 18, 1839, Rev. B. T. Welch, of Albany, and Rev. L. Raymond, of Cooperstown, each delivering sermons on the occasion. At a business meeting held May 23, 1855, steps were taken toward building a new church edifice and a subscription paper was circulated by a committee consisting of Henry Churchill, D. S. Frank, Austin Kasson, J. H. Burr, W. C. Allen, H. C. Thomas, D. M. Burr, Charles Sunderlin, S. S. Wells, A. C. Churchill, and J. H. Seymour. This committee soon reported that $6,000 had been subscribed, whereupon a building committee was appointed and a lot secured, the location being the present site of the First Baptist Church. The new building was completed early in 1857 and the dedicatory services took place January 22 of that year. Two days were devoted to this solemn occasion and sermons were preached by Revs. Winegar, Peacock, Hawley, Gregory, Fisher, Wall and Dunning. The cost of the structure was $15,398.61. In this house of worship the society held services for a period of thirty three years, when the wonderful growth of the society necessitated the erection of a church of greater dimensions. The last service was held in the old building April 13, 1890, and the work of demolition began during the following week. Negotiations were entered into with Henry F. Kilburn, of New York, who submitted plans for the present beautiful structure, and the contract was let to Alden Henry, of Gloversville. The building committee which has immediate supervision of the work is composed of the following persons: Nicholas D. Wilson, J. H. Drake, John V. King, Aaron Simmons, and S. H. Shotwell. The building, which is the most valuable church edifice in Fulton county, was dedicated with fitting ceremonies, October 9, 1891, Pastor Bourn officiating. Among those present and taking part in the services were Rev. H. A. Cordo, of Cortland, who was pastor of this church from 1878 to 1885; Rev. George Cooper, of Richmond, Va., pastor from 1869 to 1873, and various local clergymen. The cost of the building, exclusive of the lot and material used from the old house, was $55,766.40. The first collection of this church for benevolence was the small sum of fifty cents in the year 1839. The largest total for all purposes in any one year was in 1871, during the pastorate of Rev. George Cooper, the amount being $7,875.18. The church has had ten regularly setttled pastors, Rev. Erastus Miner, serving as a supply during a part of the year 1839. The others with the dates of their service are as follows: Rev. David Corwin, elected October 6, 1839, resigned November 1, 1854; Rev. Isaac Westcott, elected May 10, 1855, resigned March 27, 1859; Rev. Stephen Remington, elected May 10, 1859; resigned October, 1859; Rev. Conant Sawyer, elected December 16, 1859, resigned May 31, 1867; Rev. Charles Y. Swan, elected September 30, 1867, resigned December 27, 1868; Rev. George Cooper, elected October 18, 1869, resigned April 7, 1873; Rev. C. N. Pattengill, elected May 19, 1873, resigned June 21, 1877; Rev. H. A.

The present membership is about 875. The first superintendent of the Sunday school was H. D. Everett, and the present one is Dr. W. S. Garnsey, the total membership of the school being about 770. The church officers are: Pastor, A. W. Bourn; treasurer, L. K. Bourn; clerk, C. M. C. Loyd; deacons, A. Simmons, W. Shankland, F. White, S. T. O. Hart, J. S. Burr; trustees, A. D. Brower, S. H. Shotwell, Charles King, J. H. Drake, W. D. West and Charles Lyke.

Congregational Church - The first active steps towards forming a society in Gloversville to be known either as Presbyterian or Congregational, and also for building a church in which it should worship, were taken at a meeting held in the Gloversville school house, June 29, 1850. Charles Mills was chosen chairman and S. Stewart Mills secretary. A committee consisting of E. L. Burton, U. M. Place, and Alanson Judson, was appointed to report some plan for carrying out the above mentioned purpose, which they did at a meeting held on the 20th of July following. A committee was then appointed to circulate a subscription for $7,000, to be used in purchasing a site and building a house of worship. This committee was composed of Edward Leonard, Darius C. Mills, Alanson Judson, D. S. Tarr, and Alanson Hosmer, and the lot upon which the edifice was erected was purchased of Alanson Judson. At a meeting held January 7, 1851, a vote was taken and it was found that eighteen were in favor of a Congregational society, while six preferred Preshyterianism, and in this manner the Congregational society of Gloversville had its origin. The first trustees of the new society, elected at a meeting held January 25, 1851, were Samuel S. Mills, Udall M. Place, Zina Case, Alanson Judson, H. C. Parsons, and Alanson Hosmer. These men were constituted a building committee and the contract for the edifice was let to Erastus Thorp, who completed it in the latter part of 1852. The total cost was about $10,000. A call was issued by the society in November, 1852, to Homer N. Dunning, of the North River Presbyters, to become pastor of the new church at a salary of $600. The call was accepted and Mr. Dunning was ordained, and installed as pastor Thursday morning, December 2, 1852. At the ecclesiastical council held the previous evening there were present Rev. Ray Palmer, pastor of the First Congregational church of Albany (who was chosen moderator); Rev. Edward Wall, pastor of the Presbyterian church of Kingsboro; Rev. L. F. Waldo, pastor First Congregational church, Poughkeepsie; Rev. H. G. Ludlow, pastor First Presbyterian church, Poughkeepsie; and Rev. Elisha Yale, of Kingsboro, who was invited to sit as a corresponding member. The young society flourished under the spiritual guidance of Pastor Dunning, and in 1860 the trustees reported the church to be free from debt. Mr. Dunning remained with the church twelve years, resigning his pastorate in December, 1864. The society was then without a regular minister until the following May, when Rev. Charles J. Hill, of Cleveland, accepted a call with the salary of $1,500. He remained with the church until August, 1868, being succeeded in January, 1869, by Rev. W. A. McGinley, who filled the pulpit until May, 1874. Rev. William E. Park, the present pastor, was installed March, 1876, and has continued his spiritual charge with devoted Christian zeal for a period of sixteen years. The first deacons of the church were Charles Mills, H. Seth Smith, I. V. Place, and E. L. Burton. A Sabbath school was organized simultaneously with the church, of which Elisha Burton was the first superintendent, an office held by him continuously until his death.

The present officers of the church are: Deacons, DeWitt Smith, Uriel Case, Dr. Eugene Beach; trustees, Charles W. Judson, Richard B. Parsons, William F. Lansing. Daniel McEwen, jr., Warren E. Whitney, Earl Karker, Curtis S. Cummings, E. L. Heacock, Hiram Darling. S. Elmore Burton is clerk and treasurer. The present membership of the church is 420. The superintendent of the Sabbath school is W. F. Burton, son of Elisha Burton, first superintendent.

Christ Protestant Episcopal Mission Church. - Divine service in accordance with the usages of the Protestant Episcopal Church were first held in Gloversville in the year 1852 by Rev. George N. Sleight, rector of St. John's church at Johnstown. Mr. Sleight officiated regularly fur a year or more, until his resignation of the rectorship of St. John's, when the services were continued regularly to the beginning of the year 1855, by his successor, the Rev. Lewis P. Clover. These services took place in the public school house on Fulton street, and were held on each alternate Sunday afternoon. October 1, 1856, a parish was formally organized with the name of Trinity Church of Gloversville, Rev. Lewis P. Clover presiding. Albert W. Gorton acted as secretary, and the following persons were elected to compose the first vestry: Wardens, Timothy W. Miller and Howard Hill; vestrymen, Albert W. Gorton, George Snyder, Marcus T. Peake, Samuel Gilchrist, Charles Hutchinson, John Sunderlin, Nathan J. Burton and Joseph H. Westcott. Although wardens and vestrymen were elected annually on Tuesday in each Easter week until 1879 and social reunions were often held for the purpose of raising funds, services were not held regularly, and from 1859 until 1866 there was but little activity in the parish. This unfortunate state of affairs was due principally to the fact that many members of the society had moved away, making the election of proper officers difficult and also rendering the expenses burdensome on the few that remained. In 1866, however, a happy change took place; many persons of the Episcopal faith were known to have recently settled in Gloversville and some of the original members had returned. The parish was fully reorganized at a meeting held August 2, of that year, and David H. Cuyier and Howard Hill were elected wardens, with a vestry composed of John W. Cook, Albert W. Gorton, George Shurbourne, Thomas M. Beach, Henry Hull, William Thorne, Frank Anderson and William R. Washburn. Regular services were then begun and were held on each alternate Sunday afternoon, a Sunday school was established with D. H. Cuyler as superintendent, and clerical missionaries, with some other assistance, conducted the services. Thus the parish continued until September, 1871, at which time the session room of the Congregational church was used as a place for worship. Trinity church was formally admitted into union with the diocese of Albany in 1870. Regular morning and evening prayer was held at 92 Main Street from November 24, 1872 until February 17, 1873 under the auspices of Rev. James W. Stewart, rector of St. John's church, Johnstown, the evening services being conducted by Rev. C. F. A. Bielby, the appointed missionary for this station and Fonda. Land was secured and a church edifice partially completed on West Pine street, but it was subsequently sold to the German Romanist for $2,200. George a Eddy assumed formal charge of the parish on Sunday, March 16, 1873, and established regular services twice each Sabbath. A new church was then erected on Fremont street at the corner of Middle, at a cost of $3,600 exclusive of the lot, and was first occupied March 22, 1874. This edifice was afterwards sold to the Fremont Street Methodist society and Trinity Parish suffered another decline. With a view to revive the Episcopal service in the village Rev. Charles C. Edmunds, jr., and Rev. Robert H. Neide held services in a room on the third floor of the Hanson block each evening following July 1, 1880. August 31, of the same year, an application was made to Bishop Doane, of the Albany diocese, requesting the organization of a mission church, which was granted and Christ Church Mission was formally established under the supervision of the bishop, with the Revs. Charles C. Edmunds, jr., and Robert H. Neide as officiating deacons. E. P. Newton was chosen warden; Allen N. Ross, clerk, and Hervey Ross, treasurer. In October, 1883, the Rev. C. P. A. Burnett assumed charge of the mission as rector, and services were held in the Mosher hall on Fulton street for one year. The mission was then removed to the Kent block, where services were held pending the erection of the present church edifice on Spring street. The building was completed at a cost, including the lot, of $8,000 and first occupied June 23, 1887. The church has 330 free sittings. Rev. Mr. Burnet remained in the rectorship until December

1891, being succeeded by Rev. H. C. Smyth, who is at present in charge of the parish. The church officers at present are James B. Eysaman, warden; James Hull, treasurer, and Emil Alexander, clerk. There are 110 communicants, and the rector is superintendent of the Sunday school, which has a membership of six teachers and sixty five pupils.

Saint James English Evangelical Lutheran Church. - This church was organized as a result of action taken by a committee appointed at a meeting of the Hartwick Synod, held at West Sandlake, N. Y., October IS and 19, i888. Of this committee, Rev. Peter Felts, of St. Paul's Lutheran church, Johnstown, was chairman. Efforts were made to establish a mission in Gloversville and E. L. Dreibelbis, of Gettysburg Theological Seminary, was secured. He visited many of the church people with a view of enlisting their aid in the proposed work. This initiatory movement was begun June 23, 1889, and in three months the mission had about fifty five members. The next important step was to secure a suitable house of worship. The German Lutherans of the city, under the direction of Alexander Arronet, had built and partially completed a brick church on Grand street, near Bleecker. They were unable, however, to finish and occupy the building and it was offered for sale. The English Lutherans, under the name of St. James Evangelical Lutheran Society, purchased this church and completed it at a total cost of about $7,000. It is now worth about $10,000. It was dedicated Sunday, March 2, 1890, Rev. Peter Felts, of Johnstown, preaching the sermon. There were also present Rev. B. F. Fake, of Stone Arabia; Rev. W. C. Poore, of Tribes Hill, and Rev. William Baum, president of Hartwick Synod. In the afternoon a general service was held in which Revs. James Gardner, C. W. Rowley, and William Baum took part. Rev. A. M. Whetstone made an earnest appeal for financial aid to pay the remainder of the church debt, and the sum of $131 was secured. At the morning service $1,600 had been promised. Rev. Mr. Whetstone was installed as first pastor of the church in the evening, the charge to the pastor being given by Rev. William Baum, and the charge to the congregation by Rev. B. F. Fake. A collection was also taken which amounted to $313, making the total amount raised during the day $2,044.

Although less than three years old, this church, under the zealous care of Pastor Whetstone, has grown and prospered, until at present there are 215 regular members, with a Sunday school of 230 scholars, the superintendent being Alden Hart. The present officers of the society are as follows: Elders, Jacob Haag, Jacob Weber, John Weintz, Jost Grebe; deacons, Alden Hart, Judson R. Empie, William hlohck, William Oathout; secretary of the council, Alden Hart; treasurer, Robert L. Barringer.
