Whately — A Methodist Society

Extracted from "History of the Connecticut Valley in Massachusetts, Volume II," by Louis H. Everts, 1879.

      A Methodist Society was proposed in the spring of 1818 by James Cutler, Moses Hill, Joel Wait (3d), and John Buel; but beyond a statement of the purpose nothing further was done, although meetings were occasionally held about that time and at subsequent periods.
     Rev. William Bardwell, a Methodist, was born in Whately, Oct. 13, 1813, and was ordained to the ministry in May, 1846. He died in 1851.
