Special Historical Observance

On Sunday, May 29, at the 11 a.m. worship service of St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, the congregation will observe the deeding of land to the church by Daniel and Mary McConnell in May of 1798. The deed was recently discovered, and the congregation is planning to pause each year on or near the May 30th signing date of the deed to honor its special connection to the founder of Mc- Connellsburg.

Representatives of the Fulton County Historical Society will be present to receive a commemorative donation that symbolizes the original payment of 10 English pounds for the property. The presentation is to be made by soon-to-be 90-year-old congregation member, Warren Daniels

Members of the community are invited to share in this special historical observance.
