The public is welcome to attend a monument unveiling on May 4th at 6 pm at the North Manchester Church & Meeting House on Scribner Hill Road in Manchester. The 7’ granite monument will be presented by the Baptist History Preservation Society, Rockwell, North Carolina and honors Rev. Isaac Case, one of the greatest “Church Planters” in American history. He is credited with starting over 300 Baptist Churches throughout Maine and Canada. Under his leadership, this Meeting House was constructed in 1793. Originally located in East Readfield (Case Cemetery Rt. 17), members eventually desired a more central location, so the church was moved here in 1839. The BHP Society has erected 22 monuments around the country, including 8 in New England and over 50 of their members will be in attendance for this unveiling.
