      1aReminiscenses of the Early History Galt

      ________________________

      The principal (early Presbyterian church meetings) places used were: the old Red store, in which Mr. Stewart held the first communion of his congregation; the store house of the Dumfries mills; the old rough-cast house at the head of Main Street; and the chair factory carried on by one Alonzo Bliss. The latter building stood on the site of Scott's planing mill, and it may be mentioned in passing, to the credit of the handicraft of Bliss and, as possibly not altogether without relevancy to practical religion that some of the chairs made by him are still in possession of Mr. Thomas Rich, and are as strong as ever, after fifty years wear and tear.2a
