Historical Note

The Congregationalist Society was organized in Frankfort, Maine in 1820. It is likely that the organization was the result of the Maine Missionary Society. Served at first by missionaries the Congregationalists received their first settled pastor in Jubilee Wellman, a graduate of Bangor Seminary in 1823, who was ordained at Frankfort October 5, 1824, and was dismissed January 3, 1827. The first meeting-house erected in the town was built by the Methodists and Congregationalists and was occupied by the denominations in proportion to the contributions of each. In 1850 the Methodists withdrew and the Congregationalists were the sole owners of the meeting-house. In 1860 the part of Frankfort known as Winterport incorporated as a separate town and the Congregational Church was then located in Winterport.
