Waltham has recently said goodbye to Covenant Congregational Church after 122 years in the community. The last service was held on November 21.
The church kindly donated to the library’s Waltham Room many items of interest from their collections. These include histories, photos and copies of deeds and record books, some even in Swedish from the early days of the Swedish Congregational Church.
They also generously donated a calligraphy of the history of the Piety Corner Chapel, the meeting place of the church. It was lovingly done in 1963, probably by Reverend Roger Palmquist, and shows beautiful attention to detail in the drawing of the church and the illuminated lettering. It currently makes a pretty display, along with some other of the items that were donated, outside the Waltham Room.
