First Parish Church (Birds Eye)
In 1832 abolitionist William Loyd-Garrison spoke here to 2,000 people on his first Maine anti-slavery tour. In 1842 First Parish was the site of a pro-slavery riot when radical abolitionist, Stephen Symonds Foster, was nearly murdered for criticizing the churches' and New England's role in promoting, perpetuating and profiting from slavery. Women helped to defend him.
