HOME OF REST

When I took this photo this past spring, I never really thought much about it. Today while working on some history, I found it.

Donated to the local heritage group to ensure that it was preserved for many years to come. This home was built between 1898 and 1902 and was built by Mr. Sylvester Holden who lived in Deloraine and was a member of the Deloraine Holiness Movement Church.

In 1904 a “large, spacious Tabernacle” was built. On the grounds there was plenty of space for families to pitch tents during the Summer camp meetings. This house was meant for Church leaders and as a temporary home for families coming back from Missionaries. In 1958 the home was then used as parsonage by the then Reverend of the church.
