DescriptionTree lined Elm Street, Southbridge. Offers a view of the new Elm Street Congregational Church, the second one built, in 1885, located on the corner of Elm and Park streets. The first church was a wooden colonial style structure, built in 1821. A clear view of the steeple and ornamental tower is shown. During the hurricane on September 21, 1938 the steeple was razed. This religious group was organized in Southbridge on September 16, 1801. The Victorian residence of Samuel Hartwell, Apothecary and his wife, Ellen M. Hartwell is on the right. The Queen Ann style house has a commanding view of Main street. On the left, is a corner of the old Town Hall which is lined by a picket fence and decorative metal bollards run parallel to the side walk. The subsequent Romanesque Revival style Town Hall building was built in 1888. The architect for the Town Hall was A.P. Cutting of Worcester.
