Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

In 1903, Methodists in Altamont bought the new, unused Mussellboro School and moved the building into town to be used as their church. After the Anglican church was closed down, the building was shared with the Anglican Parish, and also used as a library. At the time of a mid-2018 site visit, the church was closing and no decision had been been made about the building.
