At the time the Parish House was turned, the basement was raised and fitted up at one end with a fine large well equipped kitchen, and at the other end was built a stage, adequate for present purposes. Before this time fairs and suppers were held in Memorial Hall, for in the Parish House there was only a tiny kitchen in the cellar reached by a dreary dumb-waiter. In a closet at the right, designed for a dressing room there was for a while a printing press on which Mr. Soule began the printing of the weekly "Chronicle". The hall between the kitchen and stage is used for Parish suppers and socials or, filled with benches, forms an audience chamber for dramatic entertainments. The Main Floor and Basement are used on Sundays by the Church School. -- S.H.F.
