Founded in 1849, 160 years ago as the LADIES SOCIAL AND CHARITABLE SOCIETY, its role was to support the church and its mission by raising money through cooperative ventures and sending clothing to needy groups or individuals. They met in private homes and while conducting business would sew and knit garments to be sent to those groups, while keeping a close eye on the condition of the sanctuary, giving money for its update and repairs. They helped furnish the Chapel (Parish House) and the Parsonage with furniture. When asked by the minister if they would pay to have electricity installed in the Parsonage they replied, "You get the church members to pay off the mortgage and we'll put in the electricity." They were a strong and sassy group! The Parsonage got its electricity.
Following the Civil War, they were instrumental in helping set up the local school system. Here in Littleton during the 1860's they led the way for the formation of the GLENWOOD CEMETERY and the LIBRARY.
Today, the Ladies Society commits itself in respecting the rich history of this place. Today, as in the past, we are committed to support the church and community with our time and talents.
