Administrative history

Eaton United Church, initially of Congregational denomination, was organized in 1835. In 1913, the Eaton Congregation was dissolved; however, Trustees were appointed to manage the church property. In 1928, after the foundation of the United Church of Canada, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the old Eaton Congregational Church property was transferred to the new Eaton United Church. In 1959, the Eaton United Church was closed and the church building was sold to the Compton County Historical Museum Society. The Eaton United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec-Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church is governed by the Board of Trustees and the Congregation.

The fonds is comprised of the following series: Church Boards (1835-1959); Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials (1838-1901); Membership (1913); Historical (1909-1990); Photographs ([196-?]-[198-?]); and Press Clippings ([187-?]-1990); and Annual Reports (2007).
