Black and White photo of Tallmadge Church ""The beautiful white church...symbolizes the devout spirit of the New England Puritans who celebrated the first Thanksgiving.... New Englanders have always carried with them their faith in God and their belief that Americans should be humbly grateful for the good things they enjoy.

-- Life Magazine
20 November 1944
