Marking History: Birthplace Of The Seventh-Day Adventist Church In Washington

Feb 21, 2014

The Seventh-Day Adventist Church is a denomination known primarily for its keeping of the Saturday Sabbath.

It’s grown to 18 million members worldwide, and its birthplace is in the town of Washington.

It was in the mid-19th century when the Adventist movement first began to form in the small New Hampshire town.

As part of our continuing series, Marking History, NHPR’s Michael Brindley travels to the white wooden church in Washington where the first group of Sabbath-keepers met.
