Founded
Historical roots of Methodism go back to 1794 when Early Methodist Circuit Riding Preacher Jesse Lee preached in Jay, Maine. Early Methodism included lots of home church gatherings and circuit riders from 1815-1869. The Methodist Society was formed in North Jay, Maine in 1880 by a quarry stone cutter, Charles Williams, and was first held at private homes and at the North Jay Grange Hall. Bartlett Memorial Methodist Church was constructed in 1897 on part of the Bartlett farm owned by Mr. and Mrs. Hannibal Purington. Mrs. Purington's parents were Mr. and Mrs. Ichabod Bartlett, previous owners, and Miss Margaret Holt's great grandparents. Pastor George Donald and wife Marjorie Donald were long-time dedicated workers for the church.
