The story of Berlin’s first minister, the Rev. Reuben Puffer, and his role in helping the town branch off from Bolton will be presented by the Berlin Art and Historical Society Saturday after its monthly meeting.
He is perhaps best known for helping residents navigate through the political process that made it possible for Berlin break off from Bolton and become its own town in 1812. Puffer, a farmer and father of 18, was then named the first minister of the First Parish Church of Berlin.
The presentation will be given by former Berlin resident Douglas Pierce at 8 p.m. in the town offices on Linden Street.
