Our History: Surrounding Buildings

The current Parish Hall was built in 1964 in celebration of St. Michaelís 250th anniversary. It was designed by architect Nelson Aldrich and replaced a smaller 1893 structure that stood on Pleasant Street, where the playground is today. The Davenport House at 20 Pleasant Street was bought in 1950 and restored to house the overflowing Sunday School programs and activities of various parish groups. Today, the Thrift Shop operates on the first floor while the Church School uses the second. The Rectory on Summer Street was obtained in 1874 and given to the Church by two sisters, Eunice and Mary Hooper.
