The Williston Community Church, built for the Congregationalists in about 1868, was most likely adapted from plans by Richard Upjohn, one of the most prominent architects of the mid-nineteenth century in America. The construction is called “board-and-batten” and is very similar to the construction style of the Williston Mill, one half mile south on Harmony Road. The style, popularized by Upjohn as a way of achieving a Gothic style without the expense of stonework, was known as “Carpenter Gothic.”
