New Parking Lot!

Thanks to the generosity of Williams College, First Church now has a newly paved parking lot! In future Chapin Hall Drive, which runs along the west side of our building will become two way. You may have noticed that it is wider than it used to be to accommodate this two way traffic. During the Summer of 2016, further landscaping will be done, and Chapin Hall Drive will end at our parking lot.
