In 1939, when the congregation outgrew this building, it moved its services to the old Union Free Church, one block west on the opposite side of Jefferson Street, which it had purchased in 1923 and used as a school and social hall. The cur- rent museum building was then converted into Luther Hall. Improvements to this build- ing included adding a basement, a fur- nace, and a kitchen. In 1960, Antoinette Meinhardt Fulton bought the building, and in 1964, she donated it to the Society. Burlington Historical Society / ,1 / 83 I -- - - -n X-A I ---
