Slatersville church to celebrate 175 years

September 30, 2012

NORTH SMITHFIELD — The first church service ever held in the Slatersville Congregational Church took place on Sunday, Nov. 2, 1838. That year, Martin Van Buren was president, Samuel Morse's telegraph system was demonstrated for the first time and the population of North Smithfield's Slatersville village was less than 500 people.
Since then the picturesque church, located on the common in the center of Slatersville, has been the spiritual home to thousands of area residents, a cherished town landmark, and a community gathering place hosting a variety of local groups and public events.
