7. The Tale of the 100 Foot Flag Pole

At the Rte. 25/6 split, continue on Rte. 25 south. In 1876, to commemorate the nations centennial, Newtown erected a 100-foot flagpole on the site where the Congregational Meeting House of 1714 once stood.

The Meeting House was moved across the street to its present location in 1792. The move made room for the Episcopal Church that stood directly across from the Meeting House until 1870 when the new stone church that you see today was erected.
