The First Baptist Church building was dedicated in December 1838. Originally it had only a bell tower, with a bell made by Paul Revere’s son in 1821. It is one of only eleven Revere bells in Maine. The clock was added to the top in 1883 and was given to the town by Hannibal Hamlin. The bell still chimes the hour to this day!
