FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH. The First Christian Church, now the Congregational-Christian Church, was designed by John Springer of Sterling, Massachusetts. It was completed on August 17, 1820, and was the first church building in Lubec. Money was raised to build the church by a group of citizens called the Parish Society. This Federal style church has a semi-elliptical fanlight in the gable end, a doorway crowned with a semi-circular arch, and an octagonal steeple base. The original spire was 125 112 feet tall, but blew down in the Saxby Gale of 1869. The steeple was replaced in 1872 by John and Stephen Trecartin of Lubec, and is the same pattern as the original spire but is fifteen feet shorter. AFN
