CENTRAL BAPTIST CHURCH HISTORICAL PANELS
In 1965, as a part of the 175th anniversary celebration of Central Baptist, the Rev. J. Thomas Leamon, artist and pastor of the Westfield Congregational Church of Danielson, Connecticut, was commissioned to depict the history of the church, including the events which preceded its founding. Mr. Leamon, in consultation with church staff and the anniversary committee, was provided with historical material and painted seven panels.
Mr. Leamon was again commissioned to paint two more panels in the late 1980s so that our history in paintings would be complete when we celebrated our 200th anniversary in 1990.
The following description of each of the panels will allow you to identify the persons or symbols therein.
