The Merryall Union Chapel in the Merryall section of New Milford will celebrate its 125th anniversary with a picnic and program Sunday.
The picnic will begin at 1 p.m., followed by a presentation about the historic chapel and the surrounding Merryall district by noted local author and historian Michael John Cavallaro.
The chapel was built in 1890 by a small group of determined Merryall citizens seeking a local place of worship,
In case of inclement weather, the picnic will be held at the Merryall Center for the Arts across the street.
